XXX MUNICIPAL OFFICERS. 

1876. 

The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April, 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the 
persons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was 
divided into eighteen wards. 

Mayor— MONROE HEATH, *H. D. COLVIN, ^^THOMAS HOYNE.

Eighteenth Ward — Jas. A. Kirk, Jacob Boser. 

*N0TE. — The order passed by the City Council, providing for an election for city 
officers under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the office of 
Mayor. Notwithstanding this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a 
popular vote was taken for Mayor at the election, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,064 
votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given for Mayor was 
disregarded ; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, 
having done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor. 

Mr. Colvin, the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his office on the plea 
that he was entitled to "hold over" under the law, a reference was had to the courts of 
law, resulting in the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was 
held July 12, 1876, at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

tChas. Tarnow was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildreth.

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, ") 
Chicago, April 10, 1905.^ 
To the EonoraUe, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— In regard to the Lambert 
Tree and Carter H. Harrison Medals 
for bravery in the Police and Fire De- 
partments, I deem it for the good of 
the service that means be provided so 
that the members of the departments 
to whom these medals are awarded be au- 
thorized and directed to wear some proper 
insignia at all times when in uniform, 
which shall indicate that the wearer 
has been awarded one of said medals and 
that the medal itself be worn only on 
occ'asions of ceremony. 

I believe that such a course Would en- 



1905 

hance the value of these medals and serve 
as a constant reminder to other members 
of the departments, that they may attain 
the same honor by an e'arnest devotion 
to duty in times of special danger. 

Section 1495 of the Revised Code of 
1897 gives authority to the Superintend- 
ent of Police to make suitable regulations 
with regard to the wearing of uniforms 
and badges. 

Section 614 of the Code gives like 
power to the Fire, Marshal. 

I respectfully suggest that this com- 
munication be referred to the Commit- 
tee on Police and Fire Department, with 
a view of making proper provision, in 
consultation with the heads of the de- 
partments named, to carry this sugges- 
tion into effect. J 

Respectfully, 
Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Which was referred to the Committees 
on Police and Fire Departments. 

His Honor, Mayor Carter H. Harrison, 
submitted his annual message to the 
Council as follows: 

Mayor's Office, ") 
Chicago, April 10, 1905. J 
To the Honorahle, the) City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— In this annual message, 
the presentation of which to your Hon- 
orable Body will be the final act of my 
eight years' service as Mayor of this 
great city, I may be pardoned if I review 
the work of the past eight years and call 
attention briefly to some of the things 
which have been accomplished. 

Before entering upon this discussion, I 
wish to thank my fellow-citizens for the 
high honors they have bestowed upon 
me. No one knows better than I do that 
my work as Mayor has been rewarded 
beyond its merits. My appreciation of 
this fact has spurred me on to do my 
best. On^ thing I can say is that through- 
out my service the moving influence with 
me has always been a desire to serve my 



Apiil 10, 

city to the best of my powers, to fulfill 
to the last letter every obligation as- 
sumed with my office. As the first native- 
born Mayor of Chicago, as the son of 
a man whom this city honored again and 
again, I have felt that all the strength 
and all the ability with which. God has 
endowed me should be devoted to the 
duties I have been chosen to perform. 

I wish also to extend my thanks to 
the- members of your Honorable Body 
and to those other good and higK-minded 
men who, as Aldermen, in the past and 
during my service as Mayor, have un- 
selfishly and untiringly given of their 
time and thought to the welfare of the 
city. - Without such aid and co-operation 
as I have enjoyed at their hands, I know 
I should have failed in many of my tasks. 

During my four administrations I have 
seen great changes in your body. There 
are few things in which I take a greater 
pride than in the knowledge that I have 
aided in the great work of placing the 
personnel of this Council on a plane where 
it ranks in integrity, ability and devotion 
to duty with any legislative body 'in the 
land. No greater service, in my esti- 
mation, can be rendered Chicago than 
to preserve the present high character of 
this body; no greater harm can be done 
it, and because of the effect a deteriora- 
tion in this body would have on other 
communities, the general cause of good 
government, than by unfair attacks and 
misrepresentation to weaken the general 
confidence of Chicago in its City Council, 
to discourage good men from aspiring to 
seats in it, and to cause our citizens in 
aldermanic elections to lose sight of hon- 
esty and good service in a blind partisan 
zeal. By dint of hard work and infinite 
patience, Chicago has secured for itself 
a City Council in which every citizen can 
feel an honest pride. Malice and calumny 
should not be permitted to impair public 
confidence in this body, nor should an 
honest difference of opinion subject a 
tried' Alderman to unfair attack nor to 
intemperate abuse. Chicago has learned 



1905 

the gain to be had of a Council made up 
of high-minded and honorable men. The 
past gain to good citizenship and good 
government has been great; selfish inter- 
ests must not be permitted to place in 
jeopardy the benefits promised by a con- 
tinuation of such aldermanic service as 
Chicago is enjoying today. 

TRACK ELEVATION. 

In my first campaign, both by the plat- 
form on which I accepted my nomination 
and by my public utterances, I committed 
myself definitely to the adoption of 
stringent measures to force universal 
track elevation within the city limits. 
Immediately after my election it became 
possible to make the position of the ad- 
ministration on this subject definitely 
known and finally understood, the Cify 
Council of that year established the 
precedent of authorizing the Mayor to 
appoint a Special Committee on Track 
Elevation, a precedent which each suc- 
ceeding Council has followed. The Track 
Elevation Committee of 1897, within 
sixty days after its appointment, report- 
ed to the City Council the ordinance pro- 
viding for the so-called Sixteenth street 
track elevation. 'This ordinance, with 
some urging on the part of the adminis- 
tration, was finally passed by the Council. 
The next step was the forcing of its ac- 
ceptance by the railroads .involved. By 
dint of constant and persitent pressure, 
one by one the various railroads were 
brought to agree to its terms, and a 
precedent was thereby established by 
which the earnestness of the adminis- 
tration's advocacy of track elevation was 
shown. 

Since then track elevation has made 
great progress, as may be learned from 
the following summary: 

Ordinances have been passed by the 
City Council and accepted by the rail- 
road companies for the elevation of road- 
beds and tracks from April, 1897, to

Total estimated cost of work.$6,450,000.00 

In connection with this subject-matter, 
I do not feel I would be doing justice 



1905 

if I failed to give full credit for the 
splendid work in advancing track eleva- 
tion performed by the city expert on 
track elevation, John O'Neill, who has 
practically made his life's work for the 
past ten years the mastery of this subject 
and the putting of his ideas in practice. 
Nor should be forgotten the intelligent, 
patient and tireless efforts of the chair- 
man of the first Track Elevation Com- 
mittee which I had the honor to appoint, 
Adolphus W. Maltby, Alderman of the 
old Twenty-Second Ward. These men la- 
bored loyally when the ide^ of track 
elevation was still in its infancy. The 
tremendous progress which has been made 
in removing grade crossings in this city 
i3 directly attributable to the work of 
these two men. 

ELECTRIC LIGHTING. 

In 1897 the city was lighting a portion 
of its streets with 1,254 arc lamps. The 
gradual extension of this system, until 
it should cover the entire city, seemed to 
me to promise the greatest possible bene- 
fit to the taxpayers. 

The first step taken in the development 
of this idea was the creation of a De- 
partment of Electricity. Hitherto the 
electric lighting plant had been under 
the direction of the superintendent of the 
fire-alarm service, who was the head of 
a bureau under the control of the Fire 
Marshal. Against formidable opposi- 
tion, I forced the passage by the City 
Council of an ordinance creating a De- 
partment of Electricity, and as the head 
of that defyartment appointed the pres- 
ent incumbent of the office, Edward B. 
Ellicott, to whom, acknowledgment must 
be made for the splendid Work his de- 
partment has performed. 

During the first year the only funds at 
the disposal of the department were the 
moneys paid in by the street railroad 
companies, as compensation for the per- 
mission to install overhead trolleys 
granted during the administration of 
Mayor George. B. Swift. At the begin- 



April 10, 



1905 



ning of 1898 an appropriation was se- 
cured for an extension of the electric 
lighting system, and in each year since, 
whenever the finances of the city govern- 
ment have permitted such action, like 
appropriation has been made. 

The heart of the city had been fairly 
well lighted with electricity prior to this 
time. The administration adopted tihe 
policy of extending the system by light- 
ing all of the thoroughfares radiating 
from the business center into the outly- 
ing wards, vhere the local business 
thoroughfares have been gradually 
equipped with arc lamps. It also used 
the extension of the electric lighting sys- 
tem as a bonus to secure the consent of 
property owners to the making of street 
improvements. As a result Chicago to- 
day has the largest municipal electric 
lighting, plant of any city in the world. 
Whenever' and wherever discussion is 
had as to the advisability of establishing 
such a plant, the work of Chicago is 
cited to show what can be accomplished 
by public ownership of a street lighting 
system.. 

Chicago today has 5,700 arc lamps 
lighted from its own plants; the average 
cost is $55.16 per lamp per annum. 

It might not be out of place to cite by 
way of contrast the relative figures of 
the cost of electric street lighting in 1897 
and in 1905: 
1897: 

Number of arc lamps. 1^254 

Average cost per city lamp $96.50 

Average cost per rented lamp. . .137.50 
1905: 

Number of arc lamps 5,700 

Average cost per city lamp $55.16 

Average cost per rented lamp. . . 103.00 

SMALL PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS. 

In the annual message submitted by 
me to the City Council for the year 1899 
I recommended the establishment of small 
parks and playgrounds in the congested 
sections of the city, to serve as places of 



recreation for the children and as breath- 
ing spots for the adults of the poor. 
Subsequent thereto authority was granted 
me by the City Council to appoint a 
special commission on small parks and 
playgrounds. This commission was im- 
mediately named. It consisted of a mixed 
body, its personnel being made up both 
of Aldermen and of citizens. As chair- 
man of this first committee I appointed 
former Alderman William S. Jackson of 
the Third Ward, who brought to the work 
both intelligence and enthusiasm, to- 
gether with a keen sympathy with the 
spirit of the movement. 

In this, as in all other desirable under- 
takings, the city has been seriously handi- 
capped by lack of funds. Municipal pov- 
erty ,however, did not prevent the com- 
mittee from establishing playgrounds in 
the thickly settled districts. By an eco- 
nomical use of the small appropriation 
the city was able to make and by appeals 
to the charitably disposed and to philan- 
thropic owners of vacant property, it 
was possible for this committee to estab- 
lish a number of small parks and play- 
I grounds, which have served to provide 
innocent recreation to numbers of the 
youth of both sexes, and by providing 
this recreation have undoubtedly kept 
many who might otherwise have strayed 
away in the paths of good citizenship. 

Because of the limitations upon the 
city's power to borrow money, this com- 
mission secured the passage by the 
Legislature of a bill authorizing the 
three park boards to issue bonds in cer- - 
tain amounts, the proceeds of these bonds 
to be used in the purchase of small 
parks and playgrounds. As a result of > 
the passage of this bill the park boards 
have already purchased the following 
sites : 

South Park Board 14 sites, 

Lincoln Park Board 3 sites. 

The Special Committee is today oper- 
ating nine playgrounds, at which, in the 
year 1904, thousands of children were 



April 10, 

furnished with means for healthful and 
innocent recreation. 

It should also be added that this 
Special Committee authorized by your 
Honorable Body was the first organ- 
ization to formulate plans for an outer 
belt of parks, to girdle the city with a 
zone of splendid pleasure grounds at a 
distance of from ten to twenty miles 
from its heart. 

While the city's finances today are in 
such condition that the suggestion cannot 
immediately be carried out, in the not 
far distant future this zone of parks 
will be created, and when this step shall 
have been finally taken, Chicago will be 
provided with the most splendid park 
system of any of the great cities of the 
world. 

PUBLIC GAMBLING. 

The desire to gamble seems to be deeply 
rooted in the human character. Indeed, 
the prevention of this vice causes more 
trouble to a department of police than 
any other one thing with which it has 
to contend. I believe all fair-minded 
men, who have any acquaintance with 
the matter, will agree with me in the 
statement that during the past eight 
years Chicago has been freer from this 
vice than at any other period of its his- 
tory. 

I do not pretend to say that gambling 
has not been resorted to. Indeed, if the 
stories we hear be true, the largest 
gambling games which have been oper- 
ated during this period have had as their 
scene some of our most fashionable clubs. 
It can be said, however, that public 
gambling rooms, at which such games as 
faro, roulette, hazard, stud poker, craps 
and the other faVorite games of the pro- 
fessional gambler are played, do not exist. 
Poker is unquestionably played at cer- 
tain so-called "clubs," in saloons and in 
cigar stores in different sections. To 
prevent the playing of this game of 
chance, as it has been played, even if it 
were deemed advisable, would require the 



1905 

withdrawal from active service of a con- 
siderable number of men and thus further 
weaken an already limited Police Depart- 
ment. 

Personally, I do not think any great 
harm can result from the playing of this 
game, as it is practiced in this city 
today. The question might be raised, 
indeed, whether to prohibit its playing, 
as it is played, would not be an unlawful 
infringement upon the personal rights 
of our citizens, especially if these games, 
were to be prohibited and the playing of 
the same game for far larger stakes were 
not to be suppressed in the great clubs 
of the city. 

The form of gambling, the desire fo? 
which seems to be most widely spread to- 
day, and in the suppression of which the 
Police Department encounters the great- 
est difficulty, is that form of gambling 
which has to do with horse races. The 
love for this form of gambling has been 
gradually spreading, until today great 
newspapers in every community seem to 
find it essential to their success to pub- 
lish so-called "dope sheets," in which 
prophecies are made as to the winners of 
the various races, as well as to publish 
special editions, in which are heralded to 
the world the winners of these races, the 
conditions of the tracks, the odds, the 
riders and all the details which interest 
the student of race horse form. 

This mode of gambling is indulged in 
today by means of what is known as the 
handbook. All that is required to make 
this handbook is a man, a notebook and 
a victim ; indeed, in many instances even 
the notebook is dispensed with. It is the 
most difficult form of gambling against 
which to secure evidence, for the reason 
that in many cases the bet is made by 
word of mouth and no tangible evidence 
exists. In spite of this fact, by means of 
a stringent crusade, the handbook evil 
has been reduced to a minimum. 

It has been practically driven from the 
saloons by means of the revocation of 



AiDril 10, 



190; 



licenses of a large number of saloon pro- 
prietors who allowed handbooks to be 
. made on their premises. By the passage 
of the so-called "ticker" ordinance, the 
dissemination of racing information by 
means of tickers has been absolutely 
ended in this city, forcing the race horse 
gambler to the use of the telephone to 
receive racing information and to for- 
ward the same to his assistants and 
subordinates. By the personal pressure 
brought to bear upon the management of 
the Chicago Telephone Company, and by 
means of injunction suits against that 
company, followed up by the tearing out 
of telephone switchboards and single tele- 
phones, when evidence had been secured 
of their use for gambling purposes, even 
this means of communication has been 
made most difficult. Today the percent- 
age of handbook gambling done in this 
city, compared with what was done but 
a few years ago, and with what is still 
being done in other cities of the first 
class, is exceedingly small. 

In following up this crusade, I found 
it necessary last summer to issue string- 
ent orders against the making of bets at 
the Washington Park race track. The 
statement has been made that this action 
on the part of the city government was 
an injury to the city's business interests. 
This may be true, but the fact remains 
that a community may not safely have 
one law for the rich and another for the 
poor. If it be unlawful for the saloon- 
keeper or the cigar dealer to make a 
handbook, or to permit the making of a 
handbook in his place of business, it is 
equally unlawful for the directors of a 
great social organization like the Wash- 
ington Park Club to farm out gambling 
privileges within its inclosure. The 
charge, indeed, has been made that some 
of the directors of this great club per- 
sonally operated the so-called dollar bool^. 
Whether this be true or not, the imme- 
diate closing up of the Washington Park 
Club track, as soon as it was definitely 
understood the police were in earnest in 



prohibiting the making of bets within 
the inclosure, shows it was largely to the 
financial interest of the club to farm out 
gambling privileges. 

As the law prohibited handbook gam- 
bling, as well as all other forms of gam- 
bling, and as I felt convinced the extent 
to which handbook gambling was being 
followed offered a greater menace to gen- 
eral public morals than had existed in 
our community since the old days of the 
Louisiana lottery, I gave instructions to 
the Police Department to use every means 
to break up this form of gambling in 
Chicago. The hand of the police, there- 
fore, rested heavily upon the saloonkeeper 
and the cigar dealer, who ventured to 
violate the law. It seemed to me, to use 
a homely expression, that "what is sauce 
for the goose should be sauce for the 
gander," and that if the poorer law- 
breaker were to be brought to account for 
his offense, the wealthy should not be 
permitted to violate the same law with 
impunity. 

BRIDGES AND OTHER PUBLIC WORKS. 

In 1897 the bridges and viaducts of 
the city were little better than ruins. 
By constant pressure the Law, Depart- 
ment has finally forced the railroads to 
agree to, the proposition that the duty 
devolves upon them to keep the viaducts 
over their various tracks in proper re- 
pair. By forcing the railroads to do 
this work, the viaducts have been put in 
good condition at no expense to the gen- 
eral fund. 

The building of new bridges presented 
a greater difficulty. The current revenues 
of the city for years past have been but 
meager, and the city up to a compar- 
atively recent date has not been per- 
mitted to increase its borrowing capacity. 
As a result it was necessary to secure 
the co-operation of some other body in 
order to supplant the old-time center-pier 
bridges, many of them in a hopeless con- 
dition of decay, with modern bridges 



April 10, 8 

of the bascule type, required by the 
federal government. 

The idea occurred to me that as the 
duty of widening and deepening the 
channel of the Chicago river, in order 
to provide the requisite flow of water re- 
quired by the law creating the Sanitary 
District, devolved upon that board, the 
removal of center-pier bridges could prop- 
erly be charged to the same body. By 
means of a communication to your Hon- 
orable Body, I therefore called public at- 
tention to the urgent need of this work 
as far back as January 29, 1900, with 
the result that the Sanitary District 
agreed to remove all center-pier bridges 
and to erect in their stead bascule bridges 
along that part of the river which forms 
a part of the sanitary canal. As a result 
the following bridges have already been 
constructed by the Sanitary District. 

Taylor street bridge. 
^ Canal street bridge. 

Main street bridge. 

State street bridge. 

Ashland avenue (west fork) bridge. 

Randolph street bridge. 

Loomis street bridge. 

Eighteenth street bridge. 

The following bridges are either in 
process of construction or about to be 
commenced : 

Harrison street bridge. 

Twenty-second street bridge. 

Polk street bridge. 

Dearborn street bridge. 

The duty still devolved upon the city 
of replacing the bridges in the Calumet 
river, in the north branch of the Chicago 
river, as well as in the south fork of the 
south branch. By a careful husbanding 
of its meager income, it has been possible 
to construct the following modern 
bridges : 

Clybourn place bridge. 

East Division street bridge. 

Ninety-fifth street bridge. 

West Division street bridge. 

North Western avenue bridge. 



1905 

The city today is about to commence 
the construction of the following new 
bridges : 

Archer avenue bridge. 

North avenue bridge. 

Indiana street bridge. 

North Halsted street (canal) bridge. 

The means for these new bridges have 
been provided by the bond issue recently 
marketed by the city, the ability to sell 
these bonds having been established by a 
suit begun by the city and prosecuted 
successfully before the Supreme Court of. 
the state, in which a decision finally eg- 
tablishing the municipal indebtedness was 
handed down a trifle over a year ago. 

During the past eight years the city 
has added to its permanent bathing facil- 
ities the William Mavor bath, in the 
Twenty-ninth Ward, the Kosciusko bath, 
in the Sixteenth Ward, and the Robert A. 
Waller bath, in the Eighteenth Ward. 
The cost of these three baths was charged 
against the current revenue of the city. 
A part of the bond issue already referred 
to is now being used for the building of 
new baths in the Fourth, Fifth, Fifteenth, 
Seventeenth and Twenty-second Wards. 

It should not be out of place to state 
that Chicago was the first city in the 
world to establish free baths. Having 
been the first city to provide this boon 
for its citizens, it is certainly but proper 
that your Honorable Body should ex- 
haust every means to increase free bath- 
ing facilities and to maintain this form 
of public philanthropy in a manner which 

will render the greatest possible service 
to the public. 

TUNNEL LOWERING. 

For years the city administration has 
recognized the tremendous damage done 
to the commerce of the city, and, there- 
fore, to its financial interests, by the 
three tunnels which serve as obstructions 
to the navigation of the river by the 
larger type of vessels plying the waters 
of the great lakes. The Union Traction 
Company, it must be remembered, pos- 



April 10, 



1905 



sesses the right to operate street cars in 
the Washington street and La Salle street 
tunnels under ordinances which will not 
expire until February 1, and July 19, 
1906, respectively. In other words, were 
the city to attempt to dispossess the 
Union Traction Company from these two 
tunnels, it would be necessary to provide 
it with other means of bringing its cars 
into the downtown district. That would 
me'an the necessity of granting to the 
company the right to string overhead 
trolley wires in the business center of 
Chicago, as well as along the principal 
thoroughfares radiating from that center. 
It has seemed to me that to give the 
Union Traction Company the right to 
string overhead trolley wires along the 
streets, which the Federal court has 
pronounced as covered by the so-called 
99-year act, would seriously embarrass 
the city in a settlement of the traction 
question; indeed, it may be said that 
with the granting of this privilege the 
Union Traction Company would be in 
a position of immunity from attack on 
the part of the city and would have the 
means of serving the public in most 
economical form during the long stretched 
out period of litigation over its so-called 
99-year rights. It was thought, there- 
fore, that while the damage to the city's 
commerce because of the existence of 
these obstructions to navigation was 
serious, it was still of but a temporary 
character; whereas, to add to the value of 
the 99-year act rights by granting over- 
head trolley permits to the Union Trac- 
tion Company would be seriously to em- 
barrass the city in its dealings with this 
company for many years to come. 

The franchises of the Union Traction 
Company for the use of the Washington 
street and La Salle street tunnels will 
expire, as already stated, in February 
and July of next year. Two million dol- 
lars of bonds have been laid aside, the 
proceeds to be used by the city for the 
lowering of these two tunnels at that 
time. Then the city will hold the whip 



hand, and will be in position to dictate 
the terms upon which the Union Traction 
Company may operate its lines during 
the period of tunnel lowering. 

The city has already prosecuted suc- 
cessfully a suit against the Union Trac- 
tion Company to compel the lowering of 
the Van Buren street tunnel, which is 
the exclusive property of the company. 
This suit was but recently decided in fa- 
vor of the city by the Supreme Court of 
our state, and has been carried to the 
Federal Supreme Court on a writ of 
error, where an early decision may be 
looked for. 

SALARY INCREASES. 

I have put myself on record many times 
in the last few years by stating it to be 
my belief that the City Council of Chi- 
cago is of as high a type of intelligence 
and integrity as is practically any legis- 
lative body in our land. I may therefore 
be pardoned if I call attention to one 
serious offense frequently committed by 
the members of this body. 

It seems that whenever a number of 
men band themselves together to exact 
a salary increase, if the number be suf- 
ficient to make a formidable show of 
voting strength, at least a majority of 
the members of the City Council lack the 
courage to refuse their demands. As a 
result of this policy, in the appropriation 
bill of 1900 your Honorable Body passed 
an item raising the salaries of all mem- 
bers of the Police Department, below the 
grade of lieutenant, in the amount of 10 
per cent. In 1900 an ordinance was 
passed raising the pay of all laborers 
working for the city government to $2 
per day. In 1902 an ordinance was 
passed establishing grades in the Police 
Department and fixing the salaries to be 
paid in these various grades; and twice 
your Honorable Body has passed an ordi- 
nance installing the so-called two-platoon 
system in the Fire Department. 

Without entering into a discussion as 
to whether these various employes have 



April 10, 



10 



1905 



been entitled to the salary increases 
asked, the fact remains that at no time 
that these measures have been under con- 
sideration has the city been in a financial 
condition to comply. It has, therefore, 
been necessary on each occasion for me 
to interpose my veto as a protection to 
the taxpayer. As a result of these vetoes 
the payrolls of the city for salaries alone 
are approximately $1,200,000 per annum 
less than they would have been had I al- 
lowed these various ordinances to stand. 
And this increase would have been for- 
the payment of additional salaries alone, 
without the adding of a single man to 
the working forces of the city. 

Today the Real Estate Board, the 
Charter Convention Committee, the Mer- 
chants Club, your Committee on State 
Legislation, as well as a number of rep- 
resentative citizens are laboring with the 
State Legislature to secure a change in 
the revenue system of the city which will 
add approximately $800,000 per annum 
to its revenues. This demand is being 
made of the Legislature because of the 
meager finances of the city. The city, 
because of its present poverty, is unable 
to add to the number of its police force, to 
equip with m.en and machinery the new 
engine houses ordered erected in your 
last appropriation bill, to secure a more 
sanitary disposition of the citj^'s garbage, 
to provide better street cleaning; in fact, 
to meet any of the various demands made 
and justly made by taxpayers. The fact 
remains that if this $800,000 increase be 
granted, unless the policy hitherto pur- 
sued by your Honorable Body be radical- 
ly changed, practically every dollar of 
this increase will be applied to the rais- 
ing of salaries of the present employes 
alone, without adding the slightest im- 
provement to the service rendered to the 
citizens. 

TWO-PLATOON SYSTEM. 

At the time the ordinance establishing 
the so-called two-platoon system in the 
Fire Department was up for consider- 
ation by your Honorable Body, the state- 



ment was made and reiterated on the 
floor of the Council that a majority of 
the members of the department did not 
approve of the proposed change. To 
learn whether this were the case or not, I 
have taken a vote of the entire depart- 
ment. The department consists of the 
following: 

Marshals 4 

Chiefs af Battalions '. 18 

Captains 120 

Lieutenants 129 

Engineers 198 ' 

Pipemen, truckmen and drivers. 820 

Pilots 10 

Stokers 12 

Total number of men. ...... 1,311 

The vote of the department for and 
against the two-platton system was a3 
follows: 

For. Against, 

Marshals 4 

Chiefs af Battalions 17 

Captains 5 92 

Lieutenants 7 86 

Engineers, pipemen, 

truckmen, drivers, etc. 569 328 
Making a total of 581 for the system 
and 527 against it, 203 men not voting. 

ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN CANAL. 

As the result of a political attack upon 
the last state administration a man- 
damus suit was brought against the Illi- 
nois and Michigan Canal Commission re- 
straining it from using certain appro- 
priations made in its favor by the Legis- 
lature. 

There can be no question in the minds 
of all fair-minded citizens that great 
abuses have existed in the operation- of 
this canal, that exorbitant funds have 
been given its management and that these 
moneys have not been expended in the 
interest of the general public, but have 
been squandered with reckless extrav- 
agence and in utter disregard of the 
people's rights. In discussing this ques- 
tion, however, many citizens have gone 



April 10, 



11 



1905 



too far in demanding that the Illinois 
and Michigan Oanal be absolutely aban- 
doned. 

In all parts of the world the value of 
waterways as regulators of traffic rates 
is thoroughly recognized and appreciated. 
Indeed, in illustration it may be cited 
that at the present time the State of 
New York is spending upwards of $200,- 
000,000 in the rehabilitation of the Erie 
Canal, constructed but a short time be- 
fore the Illinois and Michigan Canal. 
The Illinois and Michigan Canal has 
served a great purpose in its day; while 
traffic on it may now be but slight, it 
must not be forgotten that the means for 
such traffic exists, offering to the shipper 
the possibility of competition with the 
steam railroads; in this way the canal, 
abandoned by traffic though it may seem 
to be, still serves to keep down the freight 
rates charged by these railroads. The 
Illinois and Michigan C nal was con- 
structed in the interests of the general 
public; it should be maintained in that 
interest. By connecting it with the sani- 
tary canal it will serve *a useful purpose 
for many years to come, besides offering 
in the not too remote future a possible 
right of way for a ship canal which shall 
finally wed in commerce the waters of 
Lake Michigan with the waters of the 
Mississippi and afford opportunity for 
light-draft steamships to operate from 
the gulf to the head of navigation on the 
great lakes. 

WATER RATES. 

Twice within the past few months I 
have addressed comm-unications to your 
Honorable Body suggesting reductions in 
the frontage rates as well as meter rates 
charged citizens for the services of the 
Water Department. My suggestion has 
been that the frontage rates be reduced 
in the amount of 10 per cent, the present 
discount allowed when payment is made 
within the discount period; and that if 
it were thought inadvisable to reduce the 
water rates in too large an amount the 



discount might be reduced from 10 per 
cent to 5 per cent, or be cut out alto- 
gether. 

On meter rates my suggestion has been 
to equalize the charges between the 10 
cents per 1,000 gallons charged to small 
users and the 4 cents per 1,000 gallons 
charged to ^^eavy users of water. The 
discrepancy between 4 cents and 10 cents 
per 1,000 gallons is altogether too great 
to be justifiable under any economic 
theory. 

There is today a surplus of approxi- 
mately $1,100,000 in the Water Fund. 
Under the recent decision of the Supreme 
Court it is impossible for the city to 
utilize this surplus for general appro- 
priation purposes. While it is true great 
public works in the Water Department 
still remain to be performed, such as the 
construction of the Lawrence avenue con- 
duit, the construction of a new pumping 
station and tunnel in the southern sec- 
tion of the city, the changing over of the 
old tunnel in the downtown district, and 
the installation of water meters, the cost 
of the meters to be paid by the city, 
proper financeering will easily provide 
funds for these works. 

Under my administration the city at 
one time had outstanding $2,500,000 of 
water certificates issued for periods of 
from ten months to four years. And dur- 
ing my four administrations the city has 
issued water certificates in a total amount 
of $4,250,000. The income of the depart- 
ment has been so husbanded as to care 
for each and every one of these certifi- 
cates and still leave the splendid surplus 
now in the fund. Whatever this admin- 
istration has accomplished, future ad- 
ministrations may readily accomplish, 
and the necessity for great public works 
may not justly be pleaded as a justifica- 
tion for the refusal of. the city to do 
justice to its water users. 

In discussing the Water Department it 
might not be out of place to publish the 
following tabulated statement of the 



April 10, 

amounts of collections and the salaries 
paid in the Water Office during the years 
from 1896 to 1904, both inclusive: 

SALARIES AND COLLECTIONS COM-

1903 3,728,493.83 229,082.98 

1904 4,000,462.33 236,800.31 

From this statement it may readily be 
seen that economic administration has 
been the rule in the Water Department. 

COMPENSATION FOR SPECIAL PRIVILEGES. 

I have always held to the theory that 
public property is worth to the citizens 
exactly what private property of the 
same general character and description is 
worth to its owner. For that reason 
from the very beginning I determined that 
during my service as Mayor no private 
use of public property should be allowed 
without requiring just and adequate com- 
pensation to the community for the privi- 
lege. This system has been rigidly ad- 
hered to throughout the past eight years, 
with the result that the compensation al- 
lowed the city for privileges has steadily 
increased until today it 'forms no incon- 
siderable source of revenue for the gen- 
eral purposes of administration. 

The subjoined comparative statement 
of the amount of compensation received 
by the city during the years from 1896 
to 1904 should form instructive reading 
for the members of your Honorable Body, 
as well as for the citizens at large.

1905 



In discussing this subject it must be 
remembered that the theory of compen- 
sation is still in its infancy. When the 
city shall finally be in a position to re- 
ceive the full amount of compensation 
due it from every privilege of a quasi- 
public nature granted within its limits 
the receipts from this source will go far 
towards minimizing the rates of taxation. 

IROQUOIS FIRE. 

In the closing days of the year 1903 
the city was shocked and saddened by a 
terrible disaster. Almost 600 lives were 
lost in the burning of the Iroquois the- 
ater. So many charges and counter 
charges of official neglect have been made 
in connection with this subject-matter, 
and the knowledge of the general public 
in reference to it is so limited, that I 
wish to say a few words by way of per- 
sonal and official explanation. 
■ In the beginning it should be remem- 
bered that in June of 1903, I appointed 
as Commissioner of Buildings, George 
Williams, a prominent building contrac- 
tor of this city. There had been much 
criticism of the department during the 
prior years. The charge had been con- 
stantly made the department was being 
used for the granting of favors for poli- 
tical purposes. In order that this charge 
might not justly be registered against the 
department during my last administra- 
tion, immediately after my last election 
I addressed communications to the Build- 
ers' Club, the Western Society of Engi- 
neers, and the Illinois Chapter of the 
American Institute of Architects, asking 
them to suggest the names of three men 
whom they would be willing to recom- 
mend for the position of Building Com- 
missioner of Chicago. In this communi- 
cation I stated that while as a Democrat 
I would naturally prefer the name of a 
Democrat, still the politics of the in- 
dividual should be of minor consider- 
ation, and that I wished the recommen- 
dation to be based upon the individual 
capacity of the man. Later on other or- 
ganizations asked permission to suggest 



names, with the result that the Builders' 
Club, the Chicago Masons' and Builders' 
Association, the Builders' and Owners' 
Association of Chicaigo, the Chicago 
Master Steam Fitters' Association, as 
well as several hundred of the leading 
architects and contractors of the city 
united in the support of George Wil- 
liams, a Republican, for the position of 
Commissioner of Buildings. 

The only instructions given Mr. Wil- 
liams at the time of his appointment 
were to enforce the city ordinances with- 
out fear or favor, and after almost two 
years of service I feel I can say with 
absolute truth that these instructions 
have been faithfully observed by him. 

Soon after his appointment Mr. Wil- 
liams learned that many of the theaters 
of the city were not complying strictly 
with the requirements of the building or- 
dinances. He therefore assigned inspec- 
tors to make a rigid investigation and to 
prepare a cornplete report. In the mean- 
while a dispute arose over the lack of 
compliance with the building ordinance 
of the building afterwards known as the 
Cleveland theater, then in process of con- 
struction, as well as of the Lyric theater. 
Special criticism was made in reference 
to their seating capacity, and to the char- 
acter of their proscenium walls, though 
other matters were mentioned in which 
violations were charged. 

As a result of a threat on the part of 
myself to close these and all other the^ 
aters which might be found violating the 
law unless immediate steps were taken 
to remedy these violations, the follow- 
ing order and ordinance were passed by 
the City Council on the night of October 
19, 1903: 

OEDER. 

Whereas, It has been publicly charged 
through the press and commonly rumored 
that serious violations of the building 
ordinance had been permitted during the 
construction of some of the downtown 
theaters; and, 

Whereas, It is commonly known that 



April 10, 



15 



1905 



all the theaters do not conform with 
the building ordinance with respect to 
the height of floor above street level and 
proscenium walls; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That any^ further action 
against such violations be stayed until 
the Judiciary Committee reporrs an 
amended ordinance. 

ORDINANCE. 

Be it ordained l>y the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Section 1. That Section 181 of the 
"building ordinance passed March 28, 
1898, and printed on page 2,060 of the 
Council Proceedings for the years 1897 
and 1898, be and the same is amended so 
as to read: 

Section 181. All doors in buildings 
of Classes IV. and V. shall open out- 
ward. , 

"In buildings of Classes IV. and V. 
there shall be a solid brick wall of 
the same thickness as that called for 
■on the outside walls, or a wall of any 
other material or materials of • equal 
strength and stability and resistance 
to fire, between the auditorium and 
■stage; and in non-fireproof buildings 
this wall shall extend to a height of 
mx feet above the roof. The main 
curtain opening shall have an iron or 
asbestos curtain, and all other openings 
in this wall shall have iron doors." 
Section 2. This ordinance shall be in 
force from and after its passage and due 
publication. 

The following order also was intro- 
duced and referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary : 

Whereas, It has been publicly charged 
through the press, and commonly ru- 
mored, that some serious violations of 
the building ordinance had been permitted 
during the construction of some of the 
downtown theaters; and, 

Whereas, It is commonly known that 
all of the theaters do not conform with 
the building ordinance as to the safety 



of the public in case of emergency; there- 
fore, be it 

Resolved, That His Honor, the Mayor, 
appoint a special committee, consisting 
of three Aldermen, City Engineer and 
the Commissioner of Buildings, to amend 
the building ordinance, with reference to 
the construction of theaters, so as to bet- 
ter protect life, and report to this Council 
within three weeks. 

Shortly afterwards the report of the in- 
spectors assigned to examine the theaters 
was made to Mr. Williams and by him 
referred to me. This report was trans- 
mitted by me to the City Council, Novem- 
ber 2, 1903, with the following communi- 
cation: . 

Mayor's Office, 
November 2, 1903. 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I beg to transmit here- 
with a series of reports prepared by 
the Commissioner of Buildings, show- 
ing the failure of the various theaters 
of this city fully to comply with the 
building ordinances. The . violations 
are so numerous and so complete that 
it would be impossible for the city ad- 
ministration to compel observance with 
the ordinance without closing practical- 
ly all the theaters of the city. As the 
matter of revising the ordinances of 
the city relating to theaters and other 
places of amusement is now before 
your Committee on Judiciary, I would 
suggest the reference of the Building 
Commissioner's reports to that Com- 
mittee to aid it in the work it has in 
hand. , 

Respectfully, 
Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 
Naturally suggestion was made that 
this report be referred to the Committee 
on Judiciary, which was then consider- 
ing the entire subject matter. 

The Council by its order of October 
19, 1903, had stayed the enforcement of 
the building ordinances, as far as they 



n-^ 



April 10, 

applied to buildings of Class V. Even 
had this order not been passed, the fact 
that the City Council had directed its 
Committee on Judiciary to report an 
amended ordinance would have acted 
practically as a stay on the department, 
for it would have been unusual and un- 
wise for the Building Department sum- 
marily to attempt the enforcement of 
those provisions of an ordinance which 
the Council was at that very time in the 
act of seeking to amend. 

The Committee on Judiciary referred 
the entire matter to a sub-committee, and 
I have been advised this sub-committee 
had practically prepared an amended or- 
dinance, when the ill-fated Iroquois the- 
ater burned. 

Immediately, regardless of the facts in 
the case, a cry of vengeance was raised. 
The newspapers thundered against the 
administration, forgetting meanwhile 
that a full copy of the Commissioner's re- 
port of the violations of theaters had 
been furnished them on the 2nd of No- 
vember, 1903, and that they had failed 
to advise the public of the danger of at- 
tending these theaters by the publication 
of more than a few bare lines. Although 
the newspapers had been acquainted with 
the fact that every theater in Chicago 
was in violation of the law, not one news- 
paper refused to publish advertisements 
at the regular office rates, thus encourag- 
ing the public to visit them. Only one 
newspaper in the city even made so much 
as an editorial mention of these viola- 
tions. 

The fact is, as all honest men will ad- 
mit, that had the administration on No- 
vember 2, 1903, followed the course after- 
wards suggested by its public critics as 
the proper course for it to have pursued; 
namely, to revoke the licenses of all of 
the local theaters and refuse permission 
to them to open their doors to the pub- 
lic, it would have been hounded out of 
the city by the force of public protest. 
Indeed, after the Iroquois fire, and with 
full light on the danger attending the 



16 1905 



operation of theaters, when the city at- 
tempted to enforce its amended building 
ordinance against all of the theaters of 
the city, at least four of these theaters 
secured injunctions, one from a local 
court, the other three from a Federal 
court, restraining the . city from closing 
them ; and these theaters operated for 
months and are still operating in viola- 
tion of certain terms and conditions of 
the building ordinances. 

When all is said and done the fact re- 
mains that the Iroquois theater was 
probably the safest theater in the world 
as far as construction, exits, etc., were 
concerned. The only inflammable mate- 
rial in the theater was the scenery, and 
it was the burning of this scenery which 
resulted in the dreadful loss of life. 

Up to the time of the Iroquois fire not 
a city in the United States enforced the 
rule that scenery should be thoroughly 
fire-proofed. Indeed it was a contro- 
verted fact whether scenery could be fire- 
proofed. Today I firmly believe the 
greatest safeguard contained in the new 
building ordinance, and a safeguard upon 
which I have most earnestly insisted, is 
the requirement that all scenery of every 
character and description shall be thoj- 
oughly fire-proofed before permission 
shall be given to use it publicly in this 
city. 

POLICE. 

During the past three years the ability 
of the Police Department to cope with 
the riot and disorder# growing out of 
great strikes has been thoroughly tested. 
In the summor of 1902 the Stockyards 
teamsters' strike brought on conditions 
which put the department to a severe 
test. In the following spring a still 
greater test was applied to the so-called 
Kellogg Switchboard Company strike. In 
the fall of 1903 the City Railway strike 
tried the mettle of practically every mem-' 
ber of the department, from the chief to- 
the individual patrolman, while in the 
summer of 1904 the great Stock Yards 
strike proved conclusively the ability of 



April 10, 



17 



1905 



the Police Department of Chicago, when 
working under fearless and efficient man- 
agement, to cope with any industrial com- 
plication which is liable to arise. 

Immediately after the second breaking 
out of the Stock Yards strike I was ap- 
proached by a high officer of the Illinois 
National Guard, with word to the effect 
that the Governor of the State stood 
ready at a moment's notice to furnish all 
the militia that the city might require 
in suppressing disorder and preserving 
the peace. While thanking him for his 
offer, I expressed an entire lack of fear 
that the situation would become too se- 
rious for the Police Department itself to 
handle. Events justified this position. 
The City of Chicago should congratulate 
itself and should compliment its Police 
Department, both officers and men, in the 
highest terms and bestow upon them the 
most unstinted praise for the magnificent 
work performed in the preservation of 
peace during these four great strikes. 

HAYMARKET SQUARE. 

As a result of an order passed by the 
City Council upon the request of Aid. 
John J. Brennan of the Eighteenth Ward, 
appropriation was made a year ago for 
the necessary funds to institute condem- 
nation proceedings for the widening of 
West Randolph Street, in order to*' in- 
crease the size of Haymarket Square. 
These proceedings have been concluded, 
and in the not distant future this great 
public market will be of more than 
double its present size. 

The idea has occurred to me that this 
extension, should be carried even farther 
west. The extension of Haymarket 
Square, by the widening of West Ran- 
dolph street straight through to Union 
Park, would be a most desirable acquisi- 
tion for the city. The time is not far 
distant when the merchants of South 
Water street will be obliged to give up 
their present location. Indeed today the 
existence in its present location of this 
crowded thoroughfare, packed solidly 



through its entire length from morning 
until night, forming as it does a barrier 
between the great north and south divi- 
sions of the city, must by the very nature 
of things be regarded as a detriment to 
public welfare. South Water street to- 
day is beginning to run over into its 
north and south intersecting thorough- 
fares. Already State street, Dearborn 
street and Lake street for half a block 
south of South Water street itself are 
in almost as congested condition as is 
that thoroughfore. The time will soon 
arrive when this great market must find 
a new scene for its operations, and the 
idea has occurred to me a better location 
could not be found than in connection 
with the enlarged facilities of Haymarket 
Square. 

STREET PAVING MATERIAL. 

In other messages to your Honorable 
Body I have called attention to wh#.t 
seems to me to be an indisputable fact 
that the manner in which street paving 
is provided for in Chicago amounts al- 
most to a waste of the taxpayer's money. 
Street paving is laid largely according to 
the whim of a few property owners, many 
of them at times forked up by the self- 
interested pleas of paving contractors and 
their promoters. The city's streets^ are 
paved in haphazard fashion rather than 
by adhering to a scientific scheme of ad- 
justing the character of the pavement laid 
to the character of the surroundings. To 
secure a proper scheme of paving Chi- 
cago's streets the co-operation of the 
property owners must be obtained. To- 
day the average property holder is 
either opposed to the improvement of his 
property or insistent upon its improve- 
ment with the cheapest possible character 
of material. 

After a careful examination of the 
entire subject-matter, with due regard for 
the showing made by various pavements 
during the past eight years, I venture 
to assert the only proper paving mate- 
rials for streets with heavy traffic to be 



April 10, 



18 



dressed granite block, for streets with 
somewhat lighter traffic the so-called 
creosoted block, for light business 
thoroughfares, and the more generally 
used residence streets, either creosoted 
block, which is desirable both because of 
its cleanliness and its noiselessness, or 
asphalt, for outlying streets either 
brick, asphalt or macadam with crushed 
granite top dressing. 

When the grooved rail shall have been 
generally brought into use many of the 
present evils from which property owners 
suffer will be removed. But even the use 
of the grooved rail will not make asphalt 
a satisfactory pavement for a street with 
heavy business traffic. This fact may 
readily be seen by a careful examination 
of State street, fi^om Madison street to 
Randolph street; Adams street, from 
State street to Michigan avenue, and 
Washington street, from State street to 
Wabash avenue. 

In a previous communication I have 
cited the splendid service given by 
creosoted block on one-half of the Rush 
street bridge. This pavement was laid 
in the fall of 1899 ; at the same time the 
other half of the bridge was paved with 
ordinary pine block. The pine block has 
already been once renewed, while prac- 
tically no attention has been paid to the 
creosoted block half of the bridge. There 
is not a piece of paving within the limits 
of the City of Chicago which receives a 



1905 

more arduous test than, is given the pav- 
ing on Rush street bridge. In spite of 
this fact the creosoted block pavement, 
which has now been laid for upwards of 
six years, is today in a thoroughly satis- 
factory condition. And it must not be 
forgotten that at the time this pavement 
was laid it was generally understood 
that on account of the hurry with which 
the work was completed the ereosoting 
of the blocks was but imperfectly per- 
formed. I cannot too strongly advise a 
more thorough test being given to this' 
pavement, as I believe from such experi- 
ence as we have had with it that both 
from the standpoint of looks, cleanliness, 
noiselessness and the ability to stand 
wear and tear, it comes nearer being the 
perfect pavement than any other which 
has yet been brought into use. The House 
of Correction affords splendid opportunity 
properly to treat the blocks to be used. In 
this manner not only could paving con- 
tractors be supplied with the best 
grade of creosoted block at the lowest 
possible figure, thus reducing to the citi- 
zen the cost of an exceptional character 
of street paving, but opportunity would 
be given to the management of the House 
of Correction profitably to employ a num- 
ber of the inmates without entering into 
competition with free labor. 

During my four administrations the 
following street improvements have been 
made:

THE TRACTION QUESTION. 

It is not my purpose in this message 
to enter into a prolonged discussion of 
the traction question. My views have 
been made known to your Honorable 
Body in my various annual messages, as 
well as in the special message submitted 
to you January 6, 1902. It may not be 
out of place, however, to recall briefly a 
few of the essentials on which I have 
insisted for the correct settlement of 
the traction question. 

In my message of 1899 I laid down 
what I called five cardinal points to be 
considered in connection with an exten- 
sion of franchise to the existing street 
railway companies. These points were 
as follows: 

"Compensation, based upon a percent- 
age of gross receipts, reduction of fare 
during the crowded hours of the day, a 
betterment of conditions in the accommo- 
dation of the public, a provision for 
municipal acquirement of the lines at 
the expiration of the grant, and a re- 
quirement that before any ordinance 
granting an extension of franchise 
shall become operative it shall first be 
submitted at the next general election to 
a direct vote of the people and receive 
popular indorsement." 

In this message I stated furthermore: 
"While the people do not wish to 
drive an unfair bargain with the trac- 
tion companies, they are absolutely and 
finally opposed to suffering unhealthy 
and indecent conditions that larger divi- 
dends may be earned by the stockholders 
of these companies, to giving franchises 
without proper compensation, to paying 
a five -cent fare during the crowded 
hours, and to granting any extension of 
franchise that fails to contemplate ulti- 
mate municipal oicnership of the lines.'' 
In my annual message of 1900 I stated 
that public sentiment might be summed 
up as a demand for: 

"1. Compensation to the city based 
upon a percentage of the gross receipts. 



1905 

2. A reduction of fare during the 
rush hours of the day. 

3. A betterment of accommodations. 

4. A distinct waiver of all claims un- 
der the ninety-nine year act. 

5. A provision for municipal acquire- 
ment of the properties at the expiration 
of the grant. 

The first and second points are prac- 
tically one and the same. - When a care- 
ful study of the question has shown 
what compensation the companies can 
afford to pay, it will devolve upon your 
Honorable Body to decide the form in 
which it is to be paid, whether in 
straight compensation, in a reduction of 
fare, or in both forms." 

In my annual message of 1901 I re- 
ferred to the traction question in the 
following terms: 

"The elections of recent date have 
shown in unmistakable manner the ex- 
istence of a strong popular sentiment in 
favor of the municipal ownership of 
street railroads. In view of the almost 
unanimous declaration of the voters 
upon this proposition, I cannot too 
strongly urge upon your Honorable Body 
the importance of deferring any grant 
of franchise to the traction companies 
until the city shall have obtained en- 
abling legislation by which it will be 
empowered to own its interurban trans- 
portation facilities. If this power is to 
be obtained by the city from the Legis- 
lature, the grant of enabling legislation 
must antedate the grant of extensions. 
The people have expressed their will. 
Your Honorable Body cannot obey the 
mandate except by serving notice upon 
the traction companies that until the 
city shall have received the legislation 
to which it is entitled and which it de- 
serves, the question of extending the ex- 
isting franchises must lie in abeyance. 
Your Honorable Body will mistake popu- 
lar sentiment if you fail to give proper 
heed to the people's mandate and by 
that failure tie up this municipality in 



April 10, 



21 



1905 



a fresh twenty years of servitude to the 
traction companies without laying firmly 
and immovably the foundation stones of 
, municipal ownership," 

In my message of 1902 I summed up 
the essentials of traction settlement as 
follows : 

"An improvement of accommodation 
which' will do away with the present un- 
comfortable, unwholesome and indecent 
overcrowding of cars. Adequate compen- 
sation for the privileges granted either in 
the form of a percentage of the gross re- 
ceipts paid into the city treasury as a 
trust fund to be expended solely upon the 
public streets, a reduction of fares, or a 
combination of both forms. Provision 
for public ownership of the lines at the 
earliest feasible date. The simultaneous 
expiration of all franchises on or before 
twenty years after the date of grant ^nd 
the express prohibition of the transfer of 
a franchise to a foreign corporation. The 
use of the underground trolley within a 
certain district bounded by North ave- 
nue, Twrnty-second street and Western 
avenue, the realignment of terminals that 
transportation may be rapid and street 
congestion as far as possible avoided. 
The use of modern grooved rails in all 
paved streets and the paving of the 
rights of way by the traction companies 
with asphalt or dressed granite blocks. 
An universal system of transfers and 
full publicity of accounts. The establish- 
- ment of a system of arbitration for the 
settlement of disputes arising between 
the traction companies and their em- 
ployes. A single car service instead of 
the present train service." 

And to these requirements I added: 
"Even less open to doubt and argument 
is the proposition that the people expect 
and demand a voice in any settlement of 
the traction question proposed to be 
made. The citizens, to whose votes and 
support oui' presence here is due, feel 
an interest so absorbing and so acute in 
the disposition to be made of their valu- 



able property rights in the streets they 
cannot be blamed for demanding with 
practical unanimity and with an insist- 
ence which may not safely be denied thai 
no franchise grant shall be made which 
must not be submitted to popular vote 
for indorsement or rejection, if a suf- 
ficient numher of voters petition for such 
submission." 

While in my special message of Janu- 
ary 6, 1902, definitely outlining my posi- 
tion on the subject of a franchise re- 
newal ordinance I summed up what I 
conceived to be the public demand as fol- 
lows : 

"A betterment of existing accommoda- 
tions with regard to comfort and decency. 

Compensation to the public in return 
for what the public gives; this compen- 
sation to be either a percentage of gross 
receipts paid into the treasury as a trust 
fund to be expended solely in the main- 
tenance and care of the public streets 
and alleys, a reduction of fares, or a com- 
bination of both these forms. 

A waiver of all alleged rights under 
the so-called ninety-nine year act. 

Provision of the acquirement by the 
municipality of the lines at the expira- 
tion of the grant. 

The use of the underground trolley 
within certain boundary lines and the re- 
alignment of terminals in order that 
transportation may be rapid and the con- 
gestion of streets and the overcrowding 
of cars avoided. 

The simultaneous expiration of all 
franchises and the express prohibition of 
the transfer of a franchise to a non- 
resident or foreign corporation. 

A general system of transfers. 

Publicity of accounts. 

The use of modern grooved rails in 
all paved streets and the paving of the 
rights of way either with asphalt or with 
dressed granite blocks. 

The reference of all extension ordi- 



April 10, 

nances to a popular vote of the people 
for their sanction and indorsement." 

From these various statements it is 
evident that my position on the traction 
question from the beginning has been 
consistent and that in each of my various 
elections the public has well understood 
the ideas which I insisted upon as neces- 
sary to be incorporated in a settlement of 
this great question. Indeed a casual 
reading of these statements make it evi- 
dent that from the beginning I have felt 
it would be necessary, in view of the 
complications in which the traction ques- 
tion is involved and in order to clear up 
the situation as far as it may be cleared, 
and to provide for a date on which all 
ordinances should simultaneously termi- 
nate, to pass a new ordinance giving a 
new and definite term of occupancy in 
lieu of the existing patchwork franchises. 
During the early years of my service 
as Mayor I Was bitterly attacked at 
times because of my refusal to discuss 
immediate traction settlement, basing my 
. refusal upon what I considered a matter 
of imperative necessity, the securing of 
enabling legislation by which the city 
would be empowered to own and operate 
street car lines before an extension of 
franchise should be granted. It was be- 
cause of this insistence on my part, my 
absolute refusal in any circumstance to 
discuss the question of settelment prior 
to the passage of such enabling legisla- 
tion that the Mueller bill was finally 
passed by the Legislature in its session 
of 1903. After that bill had been passed, 
and when the City Railway Company had 
finally agreed to a waiver under certain 
conditions of its rights under the ninety- 
nine year act, I announced my willing- 
ness to take up the question of settlement 
of the franchise extension question, al- 
< ways with the proviso that any ordinance 
which might be mutually agreed upon by 
the Council and the companies should be 
presented for approval to the people. I 
have always insisted, and indeed was the 
first to insist, that the people io whom 



1905 

the streets belong should be given an 
opportunity to demand a referendum vote 
upon so important a matter as the fran- 
chise extension question. 

When the so-called tentative ordinance 
was finally drafted it was referred to the 
City Council by the Committee on Local 
Transportation and published in your 
Official Proceedings. Its salient features 
were also published in the daily press. 
At your meeting of August 24, 1904, I 
submitted a proclamation which had been 
issued August 14, 1904, to the general 
public, calling attention to the tentative 
ordinance and the reasons why I be- 
lieved it to offer as favorable terms of 
settlement as it would be possible in my 
estimation for the public to obtain; I 
stated that should a petition asking its 
reference to a popular vote be presented 
Avithin a given length of time, namely 
before October 20, 1904, I should use all 
of my influence to prevent consideration 
of the ordinance by your Honorable Body 
prior to its being submitted for the ap- 
probation or disapprobation of the pub- 
lic in a referendum vote. In other words, 
I announced that in the event an attempt 
were made to pass this ordinance prior 
to such a referendum vote I would veto 
the same and use all my influence to pre- 
vent its passage over my veto. I also 
stated that the failure to present such a 
petition would, in my opinion, be held 
to mean that a majority of the voters 
approved of the terms of the ordinance, 
and in that event I would feel the ordi- 
nance had met with popular approval 
and should be passed by the City Council. 
Immediately . through certain news- 
papers a vicious attack was made both 
upon the Committee on Local Transpor- 
tation, upon many members of your 
Honorable Body and upon myself, as hav- 
ing attempted to formulate an ordinance 
in the interests of the traction companies 
and against the interests of the public. 
The charge was further made that in 
my proclamation I had receded from the 
pledges I had made to the public on many 



April 10, 



as 



1905 



occasions in the past to afford a referen- 
dum vote on any traction extension ordi- 
nance which might be presented to the 
City Council. 

I may he pardoned for calling your at- 
tention to two facts: First, that under 
the terms of the Public Opinion Act, a 
question can be submitted for popular 
approval or disapproval only upon pre- 
sentation to the proper officials of a 
petition signed by twenty- five (25) per 
cent of the registered voters; and second, 
that this so-called silent referendum was 
first suggested to me by officers of the 
Referendum League, who asked that the 
ordinance enlarging the authority of the 
Illinois Telephone and Telegraph Com- 
pany be published and allowed to lie 
over sixty days prior to its being called 
up for passage in the City Council, in 
order that if the general public desired 
so to do .a petition for its reference to a 
popular vote might be prepared and pre- 
sented to the Board of Election Commis- 
sioners. So little general opposition had 
been shown to the passage of this ordi- 
nance I did not think it necessary to de- 
fer its passage for that length of time. 
The idea suggested itself to me, however, 
of the advisability of adopting this 
method of learning whether the people 
approved or disapproved of an extension 
ordinance when the same should finally 
be prepared. 

Again, it should not be forgotten that 
in my proclamation I did not even de- 
mand that the full 25 per cent of the 
registered voters required by the Public 
Opinion Act should affix their manes to 
the referendum petition to convince me 
of -the desirability of postponing action 
upon the ordinance. All I demanded 
was that a petition of a* sufficient num- 
ber of voters showing a genuine opposi- 
tion to the passage of the ordinance 
should be prepared and presented. This 
petition was finally prepared, and I was 
advised of its existence by means of an 
affidavit presented to me by Victor F. 
Polaehek, managing editor oF the Chi- 



cago Daily Examiner. I announced to 
the committee presenting the affidavit, 
that the petition having been prepared, 
I should exert all of the influence of 
which I was possessed to prevent any 
further action upon the ordinance until 
the same should have been submitted for 
popular approval at the spring election 
of 1905. 

I consider the tentative ordinance as 
having been the crystklization in definite 
form of the various platforms of the 
Democratic party, upon which I have 
been re-elected Mayor for three successive 
terms, as well as of my various pledges 
made both in public utterances and in 
messages to your Honorable Body. It 
seems to me no cheaper method and no 
surer method of obtaining a waiver of 
the traction companies' rights under the 
ninety-nine year act, whatever they may 
finally be adjudicated to be, could be pro- 
posed than that contained in the ten- 
tative ordinance, wherein it is agreed 
that all outstanding franchises of the 
company should expire in thirteen years, 
the period figured out as the commuted 
life of all outstanding franchises. In 
making this commutation, the only ques- 
tions considered were the actual miles of 
track involved. In other words, no 
greater values in the commutation were 
given to the tracks of the City Bail- 
way Company in State street, from Van 
Buren to Lake street, than were given the 
same amount of trackage in the outlying 
w'ards. 

It is a most inaccurate use of words to 
style the tentative ordinance a "franchise 
extension" ordinance. It may with more 
reason be termed a "franchise reduction" 
ordinance, for it reduces many of the 
so-called 99-year terms to thirteen years. 
In reality it neither increases nor dimin- 
ishes the so-called franchises taken as a 
whole, but gives a new term different in 
form but mathematically equivalent to 
the old terms. 

It is questionable whether the so-called 
tentative . ordinance, even had it been 



April 10, 



24 



approved of by a popular vote, would 
ever have been accepted by the City Rail- 
way Company. The terms of this ordi- 
nance were so favorable to the city that 
the large interest in the City Railway 
Company which is also interested in the 
Union Traction Company unquestionably 
would have exerted its every influence 
to prevent the acceptance by the City 
Railway Company of an ordinance the 
terms of which would establish a prece- 
dent for a future settlement with the 
Union Ti^action Company. The Union 
Traction Company, as it exists today, 
could not accept an ordinance of the 
charcter of the tentative ordinance and 
maintain any value whatever in its se- 
curities. It was probably because of the 
fear that the City Railway Company 
might agree to the terms of the ten- 
tative ordinance that eastern holders of 
Union Traction stock invested at a tre- 
mendous price in stock of the City Rail- 
way Company, thus securing control of 
that company and putting themselves in 
a position to dictate the terms of a pos- 
sible settlement between the City Rail- 
way Company and the city. 

At the time the tentative ordinance was 
prepared, in view of the decision then 
recently rendered by Judge Grosscup on 
the validity, scope and effect of the 99- 
year act, I was firmly convinced that no 
method could be or would ever be out- 
lined by which municipal ownership of 
the traction companies might be obtained 
as cheaply and. at as early a period of 
time as under that ordinance. Un- 
fortunately the general public has never 
thoroughly understood its terms. The 
fact remains that while possibly in some 
particulars the tentative ordinance should 
have been amended, its general terms 
were of great benefit to the city. If ac- 
cepted, it would have brought about an 
immediate general rehabilitation of the 
company's property, good service would 
have been afforded the public under proper 
police regulations, and the city at the 
end of thirteen years would have been 



1905 

enabled to obtain possession of the en- 
tire system at the bare cost of the 
tangible property. The city cannot buy 
the properties of the City Railway Com- 
pany and of the Union Traction Com- 
pany by mutual agreement at a price at 
which municipal ownership can be made 
to pay. Under condemnation proceed- 
ings, if they may legally be had, I ven- 
ture the assertion that a very consider- 
able portion of the period figured on in 
the tentative ordinance as the commuted 
life of the City Railway Company's fran-- 
chises would -expire before the city could 
secure possession of the properties; the 
damages finally assessed against the city, 
in all likelihood, would make successful 
municipal ownership exceedingly doubt- 
ful, if not impossible, while during all 
the period of the long-drawn-out legal 
battle the present intolerable service 
would continue to subject street car users 
to uncomfortable, unhygienic and inde- 
cent conditions. 

Since the action taken by your Honor- 
able Body at its meeting of March 20th, 
whereby the consideration of the Validity 
of the Act of 1865, or the- 99-year act, 
was vested in the State court, the situ- 
ation has been somewhat altered. Should 
the State court differ in its view of the 
99-year act from the Federal court, the 
situation may be so altered as to make 
ill-advised the consideration of an ordi- 
nance drafted along the lines of the 
tentative ordinance. In the meanwhile it 
must not be forgotten that a great city 
of 2,000,000 souls is enduring surface 
transportation which subjects its citizens 
to great discomfort, and which, because 
of the overcrowding of cars, is a grgve 
menace both to health and to morals. 

Prior to July 30, 1903, the date of the 
expiration of the various street railway 
ordinances, no steps could be taken by 
the city to dispossess the companies 
from the streets. Before this date, name- 
ly, on July 18, 1903, the receivers of the 
Chicago Union Traction Company filed a 
bill in the Federal court and procured an 



April 10, 



25 



1905 



injunction forbidding the city from inter- 
fering with the possession of the receivers 
until the further order of the court. This 
action on the part of the receivers of the 
Chicago Union Traction Company effect- 
ually forestalled the city from taking 
steps in the State court against that com- 
pany and put matters in a deadlock, so 
that nothing could be accomplished dur- 
ing the pendency of the suit except to 
negotiate for a settlement with the com- 
panies on reasonable terms. 

Although every effort was made to 
bring this matter to a conclusion, the 
Chicago Union Traction Company stead- 
fastly refused even to negotiate for a 
settlement on any terms which the city 
could concede. It was largely on ac- 
count of the fact that the Federal Court 
had jurisdiction of this controversy that 
I favored the so-called tentative ordi- 
nance, which I then regarded and still 
regard as a favorable settlement for the 
city, in view of all the circumstances, 
and particularly in view of Judge Gross- 
cup's decision. 

, With regard to the Chicago City Rail- 
way Company, the situation was slightly 
different. That company did enter into 
negotiations which at least on the sur- 
face seemed to be bona fide. If an ex- 
tension of its ordinances had not been 
given from time to time, it would un- 
doubtedly have followed the lead of the 
Chicago Union Traction Company and 
filed a suit in the Federal Court. 

Not until March 20th was I able to 
institute proceedings in the State Court 
for the determination of the respective 
rights of the city and said company. The 
decree in the West Side traction case 
was not formally entered by the court 
until March 8, 1905. The entry of this 
decree and the institution of the suit 
against the City Railway Company in 
the State Court have for the first time 
put the city in a position where it has 
been able to do aught else than ne- 
'* gotiate. 



The Adams street line of the Chicago 
Passenger Railway Company expired on 
April 21, 1904, and steps were at once 
taken looking toward the establishment 
of a municipal street railway upon that 
expired line, with branches, to be ex- 
tended from time to time, as other lines 
expired, but this proceeding also was 
interrupted by an injunction from the 
Federal Court in a suit which has been 
fully argued, but for some unaccountable 
reason not yet decided. After waiting a 
due and reasonable time for a decision 
of that case, and finally being advised 
by a singular public utterance of Judge 
Grosscup, made in court, that he deemed 
it unnecessary to decide the case as long 
as negotiations were pending for a gen- 
eral settlement with the Union Traction 
Company, I recommended to your Hon- 
orable Body, on February 16, 1905, a 
modification of the plan first adopted on 
motion of Alderman Milton J. Foreman 
of the Third Ward, July 11, 1904, name- 
ly, that the city should advertise for the 
construction of a municipal street rail- 
way on this and other streets, possession, 
however, not to be given until the case 
had been decided or until the date in 
the decision fixed as the expiration of 
the lines. It is on the basis of this plan 
for the construction of a municipal 
street railway on Adams street, to be 
gradually extended into other parts of 
the city, as existing ordinances expire, 
that I look for a most hopeful method 
of actually accomplishing municipal 
ownership without the payment of large 
sums of money for disputed and expir- 
ing franchise rights. 

The first advertisement for bids for 
this municipal street railway, authorized 
by your Committee on Local Transpor- 
tation, at its meeting of March 31, 1905, 
was published in the official publication 
of the city, the Chicago Evening Jour- 
nal, in its issues of April 3, 1905. 

In a recent conversation with one of 
the best-known bankers in the United 

States, the suo-o'estion was made to me 



April 10, 



26 



1905> 



that there might be two difficulties in 
the way of selling Mueller law certifi- 
cates, even if all legal doubts were solved 
in their favor: 

(1) The mere fact that this kind of 
security was new to the financial world, 
and might not, therefore, meet with so 
ready a sale as bonds issued in the 
usual way and in the form familiar to 
dealers and investors. 

(2) That Mueller law certificates is- 
sued by the city upon a street railway 
system to be operated by the munici- 
pality itself might be regarded with some 
distrust by conservative investors on ac- 
count of their fear that the financial suc- 
cess of the enterprise might be hampered 
by the baneful effect of mingling busi- 
ness with politics. 

To one who knows conditions in Chi- 
cago, I believe that both these objec- 
tions are entirely unfounded: 

(1st) The triple security which can 
be given under the provisions of the 
Mueller law is so far in excess of that 
which can be given by any private cor- 
poration that I believe when this feature 
is understood by the public these securi- 
ties will have an even better standing 
than bonds issued by private corpora- 
tions. 

(2d) Those who are familiar with the 
admirable civil service law now in force 
in this city, and who understand that 
this law must at once apply to every 
"place of employment" in the munici- 
pality, and who have seen the marvelous 
improvement in the public service 
wrought by the effect of this law, will be 
convinced that in this point alone the 
municipality has an advantage over 
private corporations. The city must 
operate a municipal street railway sys- 
tem on the merit plan, while a private 
corporation is under no such compulsion. 
The very fact, however, that the in- 
vestors from whom the capital for such 
an enterprise must be secured are igno- 
rant of these facts and raise these ob- 



jections must be taken into considera- 
tion. It has occurred to me that with- 
out sacrificing any of the benefits of 
which I have spoken, certain features 
may be introduced into the municipal 
enterprise which will tend to inspire the 
confidence of the financial world. A cor- 
poration could be formed under our ex- 
isting law for the formation of corpora- 
tions "not for profit." Under its articles 
of incorpor'ation and by-laws this cor- 
poration could be vested with power to 
construct, lease, acquire and operate a 
street railway system in trust for the 
City of Chicago. The board of directors 
of this corporation might be appointed 
by the Mayor, with the approval of the 
City Council, to serve as trustees of a 
street railway commission. I believe 
that if their position was made one of 
honor and dignity, to which no salary or 
emolument were attached (as in the case 
of the school trustees and the proposed 
park commissioners under the pending 
consolidation bill), men of the highest 
possible integrity and commercial stand- 
ing could be persuaded to make the 
necessary sacrifice to serve as such trus- 
tees out of love for their city. A con- 
tract might be made with such a cor- 
poration to construct and operate street 
railways for the City of Chicago, the 
city issuing to this corporation Mueller 
law certificates for the actual cost of 
the construction and securing these cer- 
tificates by the tangible property and 
the revenue. Against these certificates 
this corporation could issue bonds in the 
usual form. The plan should provide 
that all the revenues of the system 
should be devoted: First, to the pay- 
ment of operating expenses; second, to 
the payment of interest upon and the 
formation of a sinking fund for the re- 
tirement of the Mueller law certificates j 
third, the trust to be terminable and the 
city to take over the system without 
any payment whatever when the Mueller 
law certificates had been retired. Under 
this plan it would be advisable to pro- 



April 10, 



1905 



vide that the city should furnish 
the employes for the system from the 
civil service list under the provisions of 
the civil service law. 

DAY LABOR. 

During the past eight years the city 
has performed the following pieces of 
public work by day labor: 

The Kedzie avenue pipe tunnel, on 
which work was commenced November 
25, 1898, and completed in March, 1899. 
This tunnel is 7 feet in diameter and 
1,544 feet in length. 

Section 3, northwest land tunnel. No- 
vember 11, 1898, Weir, McKechney & 
Co. abandoned this work, July 8, 1899, 
after securing the dissolution of an in- 
junction restraining it from entering 
upon the work, the city undertook the 
completion of the tunnel. The work per- 
formed by the city under the day-labor 
system consisted of 1,628 lineal feet of 
tunnel in earth, 419 lineal feet of tunnel 
in solid rock; the entire section was 
cleaned out and all shafts domed over 
and filled ; the cost of the city city's work 
was $118,101.02. 

Chicago avenue tunnel extension, con- 



sisting of 143 lineal feet of 5-foot tun- 
nel, 519 lineal feet of 6-foot tunnel and 
960 feet of 7-foot tunnel. The total 
cost of this work was $41,644.15. 

The city also completed the so-called 
Ross & Ross tunnel, supplying the Sixty- 
eighth street pumping station with 
water from the Sixty-eighth street crib. 

During the early years of my admin- 
istration I addressed a communication 
to your Honorable Body advising the 
construction by day labor of the lateral 
intercepting sewer running from Thirty- 
ninth street south. At thajt time the 
charge was made that this great work, 
if intrusted to the city, would be used 
as a part of a political machine, that the 
good of the public would be lost sight of 
in the attempt to gain advantage for 
political workers. On June 6, 1904, this 
work v/as completed. The following 
figures, showing the length and size of 
the conduit constructed, the cost per foot 
of the work, the machinery fully paid 
for on hand at the time of the comple- 
tion of the work and the lowest bid 
offered by a contractor at the time the 
work was advertised for letting, should 
prove instructive:

The Lawrence avenue conduit would 
have been completed under this system 
had it not been for the successful legal 
attack made by a disappointed con- 
tractor upon the city's right to perform 
work, the cost of which exceeds $500, by 
other method than letting by contract to 
the lowest responsible bidder. Upon my 
recommendation, the city again is en- 
deavoring to secure frpm the Legislature 
a modification of the law, in order that 
its hands may be free to engage in great 
construction work in whatever manner 
may seem most desirable. In the mean- 
while I have felt the completion of the 



Lawrence avenue conduit might be de- 
ferred until the Legislature has acted 
upon the city's request for an amend- 
ment of the law, particularly in view of 
the fact that in the meantime other 
necessary portions of this work can be 
done and the final completion of the 
work be in no way delayed. 

The city has already purchased a site 
for the pumping station to operate this 
conduit and is about to let the contract 
for the construction of the building and 
the installation of the necessary ma- 
chinery equipment. In short, even 
should the Legislature heed the wishes 



April 10, 



29 



1905 



of the contractors' ring, rather than the 
demands of the people of Chicago, there 
will remain abundant time to advertise 
the construction of the Lawrence ave- 
nue conduit, let the contract and secure 
the completion of the work by the time 
the pumping plant is ready for opera- 
tion. 

STREET PAVING. 

At the time of my election in 1897 
the streets of Chicago were in a dis- 
graceful condition. In the early days, 
when the citizens first turned their 
minds to street paving, the material em- 
ployed was cedar block, except in the 
dowmtown district, where granite or Bel- 
gian block was used. 

Miles and miles of cedar block were 
laid in the course of years. In 1897 
these pavements had been down for so 
long a time that practically all were 
beginning to show the results of wear 
and tear. In consequence, outside of the 
downtown district and the boulevard 
systems, it was practically impossible 
to find a decently paved street within 
the limits of the City of Chicago. 

In the beginning of my first adminis- 
tration it was necessary, first, to arouse 
among the citizens a desire that their 
property should be improved, and next, 
to persuade them to lay a pavement of 
a permanent character. 

For the first four years of my service 
it can be said without exaggeration I 
was engaged in a constant fight with 
irate property owners who desired their 
street paving to be laid of cedar block 
rather than of brick or asphalt. Feel- 
ing that the uj5e of cedar block paving 
was a pure waste of money, I set my 
face firmly against it and announced to 
many delegations of protesting citizens 
that the property must either remain 
unimproved or be improved with a sat- 
isfactory pavement. Several ordinances 
looking to the use of cedar block paving 
were passed by the City Council and 
vetoed by me. As a result of this firm 



position, property owners in different 
sections of the city were finally brought 
to favor the laying of brick and asphalt 
pavements. As soon as these pavements 
were laid the handsome appearance and 
cleanliness of the streets so improved 
served as an inducement to other citi- 
zens to follow the same course, with the. 
result that in the past four years, with 
all the miles of paving that have been 
laid, practically no cedar block paving 
has been permitted within the city 
limits of Chicago. 

The same course has been pursued, as 
far as circumstances would permit, in 
reference to the laying of wooden side- 
walks. The use of this material for 
sidewalks had been so general that when 
the natural decay of the material set in 
and the sidewalks went to pieces, thou- 
sands of damage suits were filed against 
the city. Some of these suits were genu- 
ine; many were fraudulent; but whether 
genuine or fraudulent, judgments in 
damages against the city for almost in- 
credible amounts have been piled up and 
paid. Sentiment in the official and well- 
informed world, as a natural conse- 
quence, became practically united 
against a further laying of plank side- 
walks. It was necessary, however, to 
educate the public to the necessity of 
using the dearer but more durable side- 
walk material. 

The principal trouble encountered was 
the expense of cement and stone side- 
walks in the poorer residence districts. 
In the outlying wards a new difficulty 
presented itself. The laying of any 
other than a wooden sidewalk in certain 
sections, where the difference between 
the natural level of the land and the 
city grades required considerable filling, 
made the cost of cement sidewalks prac- 
tically prohibitive. 

In order not too seriously to embar- 
rass property owners, a compromise was 
effected in favor of the temporary use of 
cinder walks in the poorer districts as 
well as in the outlying sections. These 



April 10, 



30 



1905 



cinder walks ultimately will serve as 
excellent foundations for permanent 
sidewalks, and in the meanwhile a walk 
is provided which will not be a constant 
menace to the financial welfare of the 
city. . 

In the beginning, because of this atti- 
tude toward the use of cedar block pav- 
ing and wooden sidewalks, many of our 
citizens were unkind enough to accuse 
the administration of being in league 
with the contractors engaged in the lay- 
ing of permanent pavements and per- 
manent sidewalks. Events, however, 
have justified the position then taken, 
and to-day, I believe, the sentiment of 
the city may be said universally to ap- 
prove of the course which has been pur- 
sued. 

PROTECTION OF RESIDENCE DISTRICTS. 

Under a strict construction of the 
state law and the ordinances of the city, 
when application is made for a saloon 
license, the officials are permitted to in- 
quire into the character of the appli- 
cant, and if his character be good, and 
if he be able to furnish the required 
bond, the license petitioned for must be 
granted as a matter of course. 

In the early days of my service as 
Mayor, I established the rule that saloon 
licenses should not be granted in strictly 
residence districts, nor within 250 feet 
of a church or permanent schoolhouse, 
unless in the latter case the license 
were asked in a thoroughly established 
business thoroughfare. This rule has 
been attacked again and again in the 
courts. In the majority of instances the 
courts have recognized the legality of 
the rule, as being within the discretion 
allowed the Mayor by the law. As a re- 
sult, it has been possible both to pre- 
vent the encroachment of saloons in 
strictly residence districts and to pro- 
tect a large number of churches and 
schoolhouses from close contact with sa- 
loon influences. 



REMOVAL OF CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION- 
ERS CLARK AND HOTZ. 

As one of my final acts as Mayor I 
wish to make such amends as are pos- 
sible at this late date for the action 
taken by me in 1897 whereby John M. 
Clark and the late Christopher Hotz 
were removed from their positions as 
civil service commissioners. At the time 
it seemed necessary to me, in view of 
the declaration of the platform upon 
which I had been nominated and the as- 
surances I had given my supporters dur- 
ing the campaign of a complete reor- 
ganization of the board in case of my 
election, that this reorganization should 
take place, even though the summary 
removal of these two officials from office 
were needed to secure it. During the 
eight years which have since passed the 
injustice of this act has grown more and 
more apparent to me, until to-day I feel 
unwilling to retire from public service 
without making this tardy recognition 
of the valuable services rendered to Chi- 
cago by John M. Clark and the late 
Christopher Hotz, and of the poor rec- 
ognition those services received from me 
as Mayor. 

CORPORATION COUNSEL'S OFFICE. 

During the past year the Corporation 
Counsel's office has represented the city 
in legal controversies of great moment 
to the municipality and its people. The 
traction litigation has undoubtedly been 
of the greatest interest to the people, 
and the United States Circuit Court hav- 
ing, on March 8, 1905, entered its final 
decree in the proceedings instituted in 
that court by the receivers of the Chi- 
cago Union Traction Company on the 
validity, scope and effect of the Act of 
1865, commonly known as the "ninety- 
nine year act," this litigation has 
reached so important a stage that it is 
but proper to review what has been done. 
Prior to the year 1903, there were a 
great variety of theories as to the va- 
I lidity, scope and effect of the Act of 



April 10, 



31 



1905 



1865 — the "ninety-nine year act." Twen- 
ty years ago a corporation counsel of 
the City of Chicago, in an opinion to a 
committee of the City Council, held said 
act to be valid, as to the ordinances prior 
to the act. Since that time a mass of 
reports of special committees to the 
City Council and opinions of various 
lawyers, all dealing with the Act of 
1865, have been placed before the public, 
but all were so conflicting that when the 
street railway rights expired July 30, 
1903, it developed upon the present Cor- 
poration Counsel to consider the entire 
proposition; to take a position in the 
matter and array the city forces for the 
great conflict which was about to begin. 
Immediately after July 30, 1903, the 
receivers appointed by the United States 
Circuit Court in the proceedings insti- 
tuted by a judgment creditor against 
the Chicago Union Traction Company 
applied to the Commissioner of Public 
Works of the City of Chicago for per- 
mission to construct an overhead elec- 
tric trolley system on certain important 
^'cable" lines. This right was claimed 
-under authority of an ordinance of Feb- 
ruary 12, 1896. The Commissioner of 
Public Works promptly referred the ap- 
plication to the Corporation Counsel's 
office for consideration. The Corpora- 
tion Counsel instantly perceived that a 
surrender here would be fraught with 
grave consequences; that it was neces- 
sary to resist the efforts of the traction 
company to "trolleyize" its cable lines, 
and it became, therefore, necessary to 
consider all the powers and privileges of 
the Chicago Union Traction Company 
-and of the original companies whose 
rights and privileges were being exer- 
cised by it. That meant, above all 
things, the consideration of the validity, 
scope and effect of the Act of 1865.' 
The Corporation Counsel rendered his 
opinion to the Commissioner of Public 
Works, holding the act invalid, and hold- 
ing that even if valid, it did not operate 
to extend the term of the street railway 



ordinances. He, therefore, directed that 
the application of the receivers be de- 
nied. This opinion of the Corporation 
Counsel, for the first time, authorita- 
tively stated the position of the city 
on the "ninety-nine year act" in such 
a manner that it could be presented to 
the courts for interpretation and adjudi- 
cation, although prior to the writing of 
his opinion the position of the city has 
been frequently stated in communica- 
tions from the Mayor to the City Coun- 
cil, in committee reports and upon the 
hustings during political campaigns. 

The receivers of the company prompt- 
ly filed their petition in the United 
States Circuit Court to compel the city 
to permit the "trolleyizing" of the cable 
lines mentioned in their application, and 
in this preliminary contest the applica- 
tion of the receivers was, in the main, 
denied by the court. 

The main controversy, however, soon 
came on to be heard, and the Corpora- 
tion Counsel is to be congratulated on 
his selection of special associate counsel 
for the city, David T. Watson, of Pitts- 
burg, a man whose reputation for pro- 
found learning and great legal ability 
has been demonstrated, not only in this 
country, but in Europe, as the legal rep- 
resentative of the government of the 
United States before an international 
tribunal. The Corporation Counsel, 
with the valuable assistance of his as- 
sociates, carefully prepared the case on 
behalf of the city, and when the cause 
finally came on for hearing before Judge 
Grosscup, the city was fortunate in the 
able presentation of its case. After a 
notable hearing, thoroughly covering the 
entire controversy, the court took the 
case under advisement, and finally ren- 
dered its opinion. 

The claims of the receivers in this 
litigation might be briefly stated as fol- 
lows : 

The receivers of the Chicago Union 
Traction Company claimed the right in 



April 10, 



32 



said company to operate imder ordi- 
nances which the city claimed expired 
July 30, 1903, and which the company 
claimed had not expired, and did not ex- 
pire, until 1958; the extension being 
claimed under the provisions of the act 
of the General Assembly of 1865, the 
"ninety-nine year act." 

The gist of Judge Grosscup's opinion 
was: 

First— The company established a 
right to the main trunk lines of the 
north and west divisions of the city as 
they existed in 1875. 

Second— It lost that very large mile- 
age of lines authorized by the city and 
constructed between 1875 and 1884. 

Third— It held, without controversy, 
the unexpired portions of the many out- 
lying feeders and extensions granted by 
the twenty-year ordinances passed after 
1884 (during the "Yerkes regime"), ex- 
piring at different dates. 

The preparation of the decrees in the 
two cases-i. e., the North Side case 
and the West Side case— was a matter 
requiring an enormous amount of detail 
work, and the contest which ensued with 
regard to the preparation of this decree 
was no less important and much more 
prolonged than the first hearing. At 
the conclusion of the contest the court 
sustained the objections of the Corpora- 
tion Counsel to the decree presented by 
the lawyers for the traction companies, 
and adopted the draft of a decree pre- 
pared by the Corporation Counsel, and 
the same was entered March 8, 1905. 
The draft of decree in the North Chi- 
cago case is now being prepared and will 
soon be entered. 

Since July 30, 1903, the Chicago City 
Railway Company has operated its lines 
under temporary extensions. It was 
necessary to permit this company to 
operate under temporary extensions or 
the city would have been compelled to 
wage a contest with the company similar 
to that which was then on with the 



1905 

Chicago Union Traction Company. The 
Chicago City Hallway Company evi- 
denced to the City Council a desire 
amicably to negotiate and settle the en- 
tire controversy. Negotiations were had 
which finally resulted in the preparation 
of the so-called "tentative ordinance" by 
the Committee on Local Transportation 
of the City Council, reported to the City 
Council August 24, 1904. 

The various extension ordinances un- 
der which this company operated after 
July 30, 1903, provided that as a con- 
sideration of such extensions, the com- 
pany should pay to the City of Chicago 
$100 per ear per annum on each and 
every car operated, regardless of the 
number of miles traveled by such car, 
in lieu of the sum of $50 per car per 
annum theretofore paid by the company 
under its original ordinances. The com- 
pany has failed to pay the sum of $100 
on each and every car, but computed the 
amount to be paid by taking thirteen 
round trips as equivalent to one day's 
use of one car. This resulted in a 
financial loss to the city and constituted 
a failure to observe the consideration 
fixed by the extension ordinances. It 
also refused and failed to pay the car 
license fee on the grip cars operated by 
it. These facts evidenced to the city 
that the Chicago City Railway Company 
did not hold sacred its obligations, and 
that it was not proceeding in good faith 
amicably to negotiate and settle its diffi- 
culties with the city. 

The company also indicated its posi- 
tion by the filing of a bill in the United 
States Circuit Court to restrain the city 
from enforcing the so-called "universal 
transfer" ordinance lately passed. 

As a result thereof, on March 20, 1905,. 
I transmitted a message to the City 
Council, recommending the adoption by 
the Council of an ordinance transmitted 
with said message, repealing the exten- 
sion ordinance of the Chicago City Rail- 
way Company, and directing the Corpo- 
ration Counsel forthwith to institute 



April 10, 

proceedings in the state courts to de- 
termine the validity of the "ninety-nine 
year act," its scope and effect, and the 
rights of the Chicago City Railway Com- 
pany to operate in the streets of Chi- 
cago. The ordinance was adopted by a 
vote of 53 to 1, and the Corporation 
Counsel, on the same date, filed the bill 
as directed in the Circuit Court of Cook 
County. Service was had upon the de- 
fendant the same day, and it is confi- 
dently believed by the Corporation Coun- 
sel that an opportunity has been given 
the courts of the State of Illinois to 
pass upon the Act of 1865 of the Gen- 
eral Assembly of the State of Illinois, 
which is now and has been for years 
the "bone of contention" in the conflict 
with the street railway companies of 
Chicago. 

The Corporation Counsel's ofllce has 
been engaged in other important litiga- 
tion with the Chicago Union Traction 
Company. ^ I refer to the mandamus pro- 
ceedings instituted on the relation of 
the City of Chicago to compel the Chi- 
cago Union Traction Company and the 
West Chicago Street Railroad Company, 
its predecessor, to lower the Van Buren 
street tunnel. For some time prior to 
the institution of said proceedings the 
business interests of Chicago had agi- 
tated the lowering of the tunnels which 
constituted an obstruction to the naviga- 
tion of the Chicago River. The com- 
.panies had refused to lower the Van 
Buren street tunnel at their own ex- 
pense, and the city was compelled to in- 
stitute this proceeding. The Circuit 
Court of Cook County denied the city's 
petition, but the Appellate Court of the 
First District reversed the action of the 
Circuit Court and held that, as the Van 
Buren street tunnel was an obstruction 
to navigation, its owners must lower it 
to a sufficient depth to allow the free 
passage of vessels. The railway com- 
panies appealed to the Supreme Court 
of Illinois, but this court lately affirmed 
the judgment of the Appellate Court 



33 



1905 



The companies have indicated their in- 
tention to perfect an appeal to the Su- 
preme Court of the United States. 

In the case of The Northwestern Ele- 
vated Railroad Company v. The City of 
Chicago et al., to enjoin the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works from interfering 
with the construction of extensions to 
platforms along the "union loop," Judge 
Tuley held that the power to make 
changes in an elevated structure was 
not a continuing one, and was exhausted 
upon the completion of the structure; 
that the city was not estopped by rea- 
son of having granted permits thereto- 
fore to make certain extensions, and 
that city cannot, for a consideration or 
otherwise, give over any portion of the 
public streets to a corporation incon- 
sistent with the use of such streets by 
the public. As a result of this litiga- 
tion, the city having filed a cross-bill 
therein, it was put in a position where 
it has been able to compel the North- 
western Elevated Railroad Company to 
comply with certain general and special 
ordinances of the city, which it could 
not theretofore successfully enforce 
against the company. The city's cross- 
bill attacks the right of the company 
to operate in the downtown district and 
is still pending determination. 

Important litigation is pending with 
the Chicago Telephone Company. The 
Law Department, in an opinion to the 
City Council, held that the telephone 
company must pay three per cent (3%) 
of its gross receipts to the City of Chi- 
cago as annual compensation under the 
terms of its original ordinance in the 
territory annexed to the City of Chicago ^ 
at various times since 1889. This the 
telephone company refuses to do and 
pays compensation only upon the gross 
receipts derived in the territory within 
th5 city as it existed prior to the an- 
nexation of various other municipalities 
to it in 1889 and thereafter. 

At the present time the city is ask- 
ing the State's Attorney of Cook County 



April 10, 



34 



to present an information in the name 
of the People of the State of Illinois in 
the nature of quo icarranto against the 
company, attacking its right to operate 
in Chicago, it having failed to pay the 
proper compensation fixed by its ordi- 
nance. 

Another case of great importance to 
the city, and of direct financial benefit 
to it, was that of Duffy against the City 
of Chicago, decided by the Appellate 
Court during the past year and result- 
ing in a partial victory for the city. 

On August 29, 1902, the Circuit Court 
entered judgment for $301,376.08 against 
the city in the case of Joseph Duffy, a 
contractor, who constructed a section of 
land tunnel, to recover money claimed 
by him to be due on his contract. No- 
vember 29, 1904, the Appellate Court 
reversed this judgment, entered a find- 
ing of facts and rendered judgment for 
$137,585.28, a decrease of $163,790.80. 
Th^ city has appealed from this judg- 
ment to the Supreme Court. The Law 
Department is confident of wiping out 
this entire judgment, the same as it did 
in wiping out in the Supreme Court the 
judgment of the Circuit Court of Cook 
County in favor of Weir, McKechney & 
Company, tunnel contractors, for $555,- 
560.22. 

The Law Department has, during the 
past year, tried a number of important 
cases involving the construction of the 
Civil Service Act and the powers of the 
Board of Civil Service Commissioners, 
many of which lay down new principles, 
but space will not allow reference to the 
same. It may be said, however, that the 
department has been successful in main- 
taining the integrity of the Civil Service 
Act. 

In 1897 a volume of the city ordi- 
nances was published under the title of 
"The Revised Code of 1897 of Chicago." 
This edition was, in fact, not a revision, 
but more of a compilation. The result 
has been that it was found necessary to 
revise and republish the city ordinances. 



1905 

During the past year the general ordi- 
nances have been completely revised, 
and on March 20, 1905, the City Council 
adopted them. The ordinances are be- 
ing printed in book form and will be 
known as "The Revised Municipal Code 
of Chicago of 1905." 

The Law Department is also engaged 
in preparing a volume containing the 
most important opinions rendered by 
the Corporation Counsel and assistants 
since 1897, at which time a volume of. 
the opinions theretofore rendered by the 
Corporation Counsel's office was printed. 
This very valuable book is in the hands 
of the printer and will soon be issued. 
comptroller's office. 
Among the more important things oc- 
curring during the year in the Depart- 
ment of Finance was the issuance of 
$5,250,000 four per cent judgment bonds 
to redeem a like amount of judgments 
against the City of Chicago, bearing 5 
per cent interest. 

Prompt and more satisfactory dis- 
bursement of special assessment funds 
has been secured for the local improve- 
ment bondholders, thereby saving the in- 
terest on special assessment taxes to 
property owners. 

There were issued during the year 
$3,000,000 of permanent improvement 
bonds. While this greatly increases the 
available funds for purposes of perma- 
nent improvements, by the operation of 
the Juul law the necessity for levying 
a sinking fund to take up bonds at 
maturity, and the levying for payment 
of interest will decrease the available 
funds for corporate purposes. This oper- 
ates to increase the financial embarrass- 
ment of the city. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

Water Supply. 
One of the 25,000,000 vertical triple 
expansion Riedler pumping engines con- 
tracted for in 1902 was installed at the 
Chicago avenue pumping station during 



April 10, 



35 



1905 



the year. Six 250 horse power internally- 
fired boilers, replacing the old return 
tubular boilers, were installed at the 
Fourteenth street pumping station. 

The total amount of water pumped in 
1904 was 146,310,498,353 gallons, which 
is an increase of 8,784,746,397 gallons 
over the quantity pumped during 1903. 
On the basis of 1,926,251, as determined 
by the last school census, the daily per 
capita pumpage was 203.3 gallons. 

The usual amount of repair work to 
the system was done. 

Plans and specifications were prepared 
for the following additions to the sys- 
tem: Two 40,000,000 gallon vertical 
triple expansion pumping engines to be 
installed at the Central Park * and 
Springfield avenue pumping stations; 
one 20,000,000 horizontal compound 
pumping engine to be installed at the 
Sixty-eighth street pumping station; 
four 250 horse power boilers to replace 
the old boilers at the Lake View pump- 
ing station. A contract was awarded for 
a new superstructure of the Lake View 
crib. 

Plans and specifications are also under 
preparation for four 250 horse power 
boilers for the Sixty-eighth street and 
for four similar boilers for the Harrison 
street pumping stations to replace old 
boilers. 

Water Pipe Extension. 

Two hundred and forty-two thousand 
five hundred and ninety-four lineal feet 
of water mains, varying in size from 
4 inches to 36 inches in diameter, were 
laid during the year. This is nearly 
twice the amount laid in 1903. Five 
hundred and forty-one hydrants and 445 
valves were placed. There were at the 
close of the year 1904 a total of 1,978% 
miles of water mains, 20,349 hydrants 
and 16,095 valves. 

Bridges and Viaducts. 
During the year 1904 new bascule 
bridges were opened to traffic afc West 



Division street and Northwestern ave- 
nue, over the north branch of the Chi- 
cago River. Both of these bridges were 
designed and built by the City of Chi- 
cago. A bascule bridge, built by the 
Sanitary District of Chicago, over the 
south branch of the Chicago River, at 
Loomis street, was also opened for pub- 
lic use in the year 1904. Plans were 
prepared and contracts let for substruc- 
ture and superstructure of a trunnion 
bascule bridge and for a temporary pon- 
toon bridge at Archer avenue over the 
south fork of the south branch of the 
Chicago River. Plans and specifications 
were also prepared for a trunnion bas- 
cule bridge over the north branch of the 
Chicago River at North avenue,- but the 
contract has not yet been let. ' 

HARBORS. 

Twenty permits were issued during the 
year for the construction of 3,628 feet of 
new dock on the Calumet and Chicago 
rivers and Lake Michigan; forty-nine 
permits were issued for rebuilding 5,443 
feet of dock, and eleven permits were is- 
sued for repairing 1,649 feet of dock in 
the Chicago river and Lake Michigan, 
being a total of eighty dock permits, cov- 
ering 10,720 lineal feet of docking, yield- 
ing $1,752.13 in fees. The United States 
dredged 609,000 cubic yards from the 
Calumet river, but did no dredging dur- 
ing the year in the Chicago river or Chi- 
cag'o outer harbor. 

The Sanitary District in widening the 
south branch to 200 feet dredged away- 
several tracts, amounting to 53,500 cubic 
yards; the South Park Commissioners 
dredged 508,963 cubic yards from the 
outer harbor of Chicago and deposited 
the same in Grant Park area. Private 
dock owners dredged along their respec- 
tive fronts to the amount of 48,000 cubic 
yards, yielding $192 in fees. 

There were seventy-one dredging per- 
mits issued during the year. 

Our commerce by Lake Michigan has 
fallen off 2,279,936 tons and 1,899 ves- 



April 10, ' 

sels durin/g the year 1904, there being only 
12,746,078 tons and 12,904 vessel en- 
trances and clearances in both our ports, 
as against 15,026,014 tons and 14,803 
vessels for the year 1903. 



BUREAU OF WATER. 

Assessor's Division. 

Contracts were let ior laying water 
service pipes in seventy-eight streets. 
Estimates for laying water services pipes 
in seventy- seven streets have been pre- 
pared and returned to the Board of Local 
Improvements. 

Meter Division. 

The increase in the number of meters 
in use during the year 1904 was 804. 
There were repaired during the year 3,320 
meters, being about 40 per cent of the 
total number in service. Collections in 
this division exceeded those for the year 
1903 in the amount of $180,166. 

Collection Division. 

The v\/ork in the collection division has 
been quite satisfactory, considering the 
increased growth of the city and the con- 
sequent increased number of accounts. 
Work is up to date, having been accom- 
plished without any increase in the force. 
The collections from assessed rates show 
an increase of $89,202. The collections 
of the entire bureau exceed $4,000,000, 
being an increase over the previous year 
of $273,000. 

While the collections of the bureau 
have been greater than in any year in 
the history of the city, the expenses of 
the collections have been less, being 61/2 
per cent, as against 6 8-10 per cent for 
the year 1903. In the year 1892 the 
per cent of expenses to collections was 13 
per cent. The reduction to 61/2 per cent 
demonstrates the efficient business admin- 
istration of this bureau.

The appropriation for the maintenance their appreciation to the benefits to be de 
of the thirty-two parks under the juris- 
diction of this department for the year 
1904 was $22,250, of which sum $15,-

From January 1st to March 8th, 1905, 
the following work has been performed in 
the Street Department: 

Miles of streets and alleys cleaned, in- 
cluding snow, 2,0251/2, at a cost of about 
$59,800, of which amount about $10,000 
will be collected from the traction com- 
panies for cleaning their rights-of-way. 

There were removed 6,390 loads of 
street dirt and 30,890 loads of snow. 
Inlets opened and cleaned, 38,575. 
There were removed 305,588 cubic 
yards of garbage, or 60,956 loads, at an 
expense of $126,319.87.

A number of much needed repairs have 
been made and the sewers are now in 
good condition as to repairs, but owing to 
the inadequate appropriation we are un- 
able to do any systematic cleaning, con- 
fining ourselves to attending to com- 
plaints. 

If the sewer in Jackson Parle avenue 
is extended south of the railroad tracks 
at Seventy-ninth street during the sum- 
mer, the city, by operating the pumping 
station, will give great relief to Dauphin 
Park district by taking care of the ditch- 
w^ater. 

INTERCEPTING SEWERS 

During the year ending December 31, 
1904, Sections G and H, the main inter- 
cepting sewers in the Illinois Central 
rio^ht-of-Avay, Cornell avenue and Jackson 
Park avenue, from Thirty-ninth street to 
Seventy-third street, were completed by 
day labor in a satisfactory manner. Sec- 
tion I was also built by day labor, being 
a ei/g-foot sewer in the Illinois Central 
right-of-way, from Thirty-ninth street to 
Thirty-fifth street. 

A temporary pumping station was 
built and pumps installed on the lake 
shore at Thirty-ninth street, and since 
October the sewage north of Fifty-third 
street has been pumped into the Thirty- 
ninth street conduit, relieving the lake of 
the pollution of the sewage from a popu- 
lation of 150,000 persons. 

The work on the substructure . of the 
Thirty-ninth street pumping station, in- 
volving the placing of 8,000 cubic yards 
of concrete, forming channels for lake 
water and sewage, was completed and the 
construction of the engine and boiler house 
was commenced. Tbe cornerstone of this 
building was laid on January 12, 1905, 
and the structure of granite and pressed 



1905 

brick is well under way and will be ready 
for setting the machinery early in the 
spjing. The pumping machinery is built 
and ready for setting, so that pumps will 
be regularly started before the summer 
season and all sewage on the south side 
north of Eighty-seventh street will have 
been diverted from the lake to the drain- 
age canal. 

The decision of the Supreme Court ad- 
verse to th employment of day labor on 
large work, affirmed in December, has 
temporarily settled the question of con- ' 
structing the Lawrence avenue conduit 
otherwise than by contract. 

The Council authorized the purchase of 
a lot for the pumping station on this 
conduit near the main intercepting sewers 
already built in Sheridan road, which will 
result in much better efficiency than was 
afforded by the original plan outlined by 
the Pure Water Commission, which 
fixed the pumping station at the river, 
which would have resulted in the main 
intercepting sewer being constantly sub- 
merged. With the station at the Evans- 
ton branch of the C, M. & St. P. R. R., . 
these sewers will be kept constantly 
pumped down, giving much better drain- 
age to the whole north shore. 

BUREAU OF MAPS. 

In the Bureau of Maps there have been 
1,955 plats prepared covering an area of 
2,033.25 miles; 272 maps and plats for 
various city officials and departments; 
there have been verified 505 miscellaneous 
petitions, electric light, street railways, 
saloon license protests and house moving 
petitions. 14,997 people required the at- 
tention of the bureau; 10.30 miles of 
streets were vacated during the year; 
10.241 miles of streets were added; 7.11 
miles of alleys were' vacated; 3.66 miles 
of alleys were added. 

The bureau has made drawings for all 
bath houses, which plans were exhibited 
at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. 

It recommends the convening of street

and alleys committees for the purpose of 
devising a system to name and number 
systematically all streets and houses, 

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, 

A total of 2,614 fewer deaths among a 
population some 60,000 more than that 
of the previous year; a reduction of 
1,224 deaths under 5 years of age, in- 
cluding 927 children of the "milk-feeding" 
period of life; the best sanitary quality 
of the public water supply ever furnished, 
and as a consequence of the latter, a 
vanishing death rate from typhoid fever; 
a successful battle with frequent and con- 
tinued importations of small-pox are 
among the fetitures of the year 1904 
which the Commissioner of Health re- 
ports with justifiable satisfaction. 

An important factor in maintaining 
the constantly improving 'health condi- 
tions of the city has been the substantial 
completion and effective operation of the 
South Side Intercepting Sewer System 
and by means of which Chicago's water 
supply may now be counted among the 
best. Since the latter part of September 
last, the water from all tunnels has been 
found, hj the Department Laboratory, to 
be as good as the samples taken twelve 
miles from shore, which is the department 
standard of purity or "safety." The re- 
sult is seen in the lowest typhoid-fever 
death rate in the history of Chicago 1.92 
per 10,000 of population, as compared 
with an average of 3.24 during the pre- 
vious decennium. 

A serious menace to the child-life of 
the city, early threatened from the "one- 
daily-delivery" of milk, was, fortunately 
offset by the unusually' low summer tem- 
perature—the coolest in thirty-four 
years. The action, however, led to in- 
creased activity among the various volun- 
teer agencies* for improving the quality 
of the milk supply and caused the Com- 
missioner personally to investigate the 
conditions of milk production in the coun- 
try and the methods of shipment to the 



city. A great improvement has resulted 
in the former^ and the railroads are now 
interested in furnishing better facilities 
for handling in transit and for speedy 
transportation, thus "shortening the time 
from the cow to the baby." 

To the improved quality of the milk 
supply, from these causes is largely due 
the reduction of mortality among child- 
ren of the "milk-feeding period" ( 1 to 5 
years of age) from the number in 1903. 
The cool summer, however, was a con- 
siderable factor in this saving of child 
life. 

Smallpox, which more than once threat- 
ened an epidemic spread from repeated 
importations into the city, has been com- 
bated with such vigilance and efficiency 
that its total mortality is only thirty as 
compared with forty-seven in 1903. This~ 
vigilance and efficiency, made possible 
by the City Council's emergency appro- 
priation, have prevented any panic or 
undue excitement from the continued 
presence of the disease — a presence which 
must last as long as smallpox remains so 
widespread throughout the country as 
it now is. 

So, too, with diphtheria: The depart- 
ment supply of the antitoxin was cut off 
early in the year and the gravest results 
were apprehended, A personal visit and 
appeal by the Commissioner to the New 
York Health Commissioner secured a re- 
newal of former relations and an abund- 
ent supply of the specific from that to 
the present time. The total deaths from 
this dreaded disease were only 396, be- 
ing 218 fewer than for the year 1903, and 
the fewest since 1878 when the popula- 
tion was less than one-fourth that at 
present. 

Largeh'^ through these and similar ef- 
forts of the department. Chicago has 
maintained its record for the highest de- 
gree of healthfulness among all cities of 
more than 300,000 population, notwith- 
standing that its per capita expenditure 



^ 



.April 10, 

is, as a matter of financial necessity, the 
lowest among such cities. 

BOARD OF LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. 

Special assessments for different im- 
provements have been levied during the 
year 1904 by this department, amount- 
ing to $8,350,029.50, of which amount the 
Assessment for paving 

streets represented $4,384,522.15 

Assessment for sewers repre- 
sented 1,244,195.18 

Assessment for water sup- 
ply pipe 196,373.10 

Assessment for plank 

sidewalks 105,277.42 

Assessment for cement 
sidewalks 1,587,219.61 

The balance being made up of assessments 
for cinder and stone sidewalks, house 
drains, water service pipes, etc. 

There was actually constructed during 
the year 84.45 miles of street paving, at a 
total cost of $3,208:826.56, with different 
materials, as follows: 
Asphalt, 43.02 miles, at a 

cost of $2,010,662.49 

Macadam, 30.72 miles, at a 

cost of 658,161.40 

Granite block, 4.61 miles, at 

at cost of 314,069.63 

Vitrified brick, 5.53 miles at 

a cost of 195,928.88 

Creosoted block, .57 miles, 

at a cost of 30,004.16 

Cost of water supply pipes, 

laid 92,916.28 

Cost of water service pipes, 

laid . 39,346.06 

Cost of house drains, con- 
structed 29,530.61 

Cost of sewers constructed. . 428,363.89 
Cost of sidewalks, con- 
structed 480,367.04 

Of which cement sidewalks constituted 
74.51 miles, at a cost of $369,414.62, 
cinder sidewalks, 49.40 miles, at a cost of 
$85,813.73, and plank sidewalks, 10.89 
miles, at a cost of $25,138.69. 



42 1905 



I desire to call your attention to the 
construction work of the Sidewalk De- 
partment, which not only shows that 
a much greater amount of sidewalks has 
been constructed during the past year 
than ever before, but that most of the 
sidewalks constructed were cement and 
cinders, indicating that the day of plank 
sidewalks has almost entirely disap- 
peared. 

The most notable great public improve- 
ments taken up by the board during the 
past year are probably the two sewer 
systems in the Calumet District, one of 
which is known as the Jackson Park ave- . 
nue sewer system, which is now under 
contract and in actual construction, the 
total cost of which will be over a million 
dollars; the other, known as the Ninety- 
fifth street sewer system, which has just 
been confirmed by the County Court, and ' 
which will cost between eight hundred 
thousand and a million dollars, the work 
upon which will undoubtedly begin dur- 
ing the year 1905. When these two sewer 
systems are constructed, the whole terri- 
tory in the southeastern part of the city, 
known as the Calumet District, and cov- 
ering a territory practically bounded by 
Seventy-third street on the north, the city 
limits on the south, Ashland avenue on 
the west and the lake on the east, will be 
properly sewered, and relieved from the 
great inconvenience, on account of flood 
waters, which the inhabitants of that dis- 
trict have been subject to for years. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

With only 2,316 patrolmen in the ser- 
vice (the lowest number since 1891) the 
results accomplished by this department 
are remarkably good, having in many in- 
stances surpassed previous years. Sef- 
enty-nine thousand and twenty-six charges 
were brought against persons arrested, 
not including 369 arrests made for the 
federal authorities, sheriff, and coroner 
of Cook' County, an increase of 1,263 
cases over 1903. 
I Fifteen per cent of these cases were 



April 10, 



43 



1905 



felonies, ten per cent of these cases were 
state misdemeanors, seventy- five per cent 
of these cases were violations of city or- 
dinances. 

Twenty-one thousand five hundred and 
forty-two persons were fined in the po- 
lice courts, the amount of fines aggre- 
gating $393,00'3. 

One thousand four hundred and sixty- 
three persons were convicted of crimes 
through the activity of the police. Five 
hundred and thirty-seven were sentenced 
to the penitentiary or reformatories and 
nine hundred and twenty-six to the county 
jail or house of correction, an increase of 
28 per cent over last year. 

158 persons were arrested for murder: 

33 were convicted (57 per cent in- 
crease over 1903). 

9 were discliarged by the grand jury. 

21 were exonerated by the Coroner's 
jury. 

6 were acquitted in the Criminal 
Court. 

27 were released on account of insuf- 
ficient evidence. 

d2 cases are pending. 

29 murder cases were carried over 
from 1903 and disposed of this year as 
follows : 

5 were hanged. 

11 sent to the penitentiary or reforma- 
tories. 

11 were acquitted in the Criminal 
Court. 

1 died in the county jail. 

1 fled to Vienna, Austria and is now 
under arrest for a murder committed 
there. 

The finger print system of identifica- 
tion of criminals, so successful in Euro- 
pean cities, has been adopted in the 
Bureau of Identification, and is proving 
of A^alue to this branch of the service. 

Nine hundred and sixty-eight arrests 
were made for robbery, of this total one 
hundred and twenty-five convictions were 
had. 

Three hundred and seventy-five fugi- 



tives from justice were handled during 
the year;, ninety-six were traced to and 
arrested in other cities and returned to 
Chicago for trial; two hundred and 
eighty were arrested in Chicago and 
turned over to officers from other cities, 
an increase of 43 per cent over 1903. 

Estimated value of property reported 
stolen $415,519.83. 

Value of lost and stolen property re- 
covered $436,538.57. 

Number of accidents reported, 7,360. 

iS'umber of calls for patrol wagons, 
70,826. 

Number of miles traveled 232,835. 

Forty policemen in the active service 
died during the year, two of whom were 
killed in the discharge of duty and 272 
injured in the discharge of duty. 

A new police star of better material 
and improved appearance with the city 
seal in relief in center was designed and 
officially adopted as the badge of office of 
the members of the Chicago Police De- 
partment. This star can be distinguished 
at a glance from any other star in use in 
this country and elsewhere as far as 
known. 

A nine pointed star plain and without 
seal has also been designated for the use 
of special policem.en. All appointments 
of special policemen prior to January 1, 
1903, were cancelled with notice to those 
special policemen still in the service to 
call at police headquarters and be re- 
appointed. In future all special police- 
men are instructed to report in person to 
the Assistant General Superintendent of 
Police monthly or as often as may be 
required. 

The preparation and compilation of an 
up to date manual of rules and regula- 
tions for the guidance of the department 
to supersede, the antiquated and obsolete 
manual hitherto in use has just been 
completed and will be in use in a very 
short time. 

A Bureau of Records has been estab- 



April 10, 



44 



1905 



lislied wliich commenced operations Janu- 
ary 1, 1905. It will be in charge of a 
superintendent who will be a commanding 
officer selected for his fitness to fill the 
position. The object aimed at by this 
institution is the adoption and mainten- 
ance of an improved uniform system of 
blank books and records throughout the 
entire department. 

HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 

The Carter H. Harrison medal for dis- 
tinguished bravery for the year 1902 was 
awarded to Officer George Mengerson. 

The Carter H. Harrison medal for dis- 
tinguished bravery for the year 1903 was 
awarded to Officer William V. Blaul. 

The Carter H. Harrison medal for dis- 
tinguished bravery for the year 1904 was 
awarded to Officer John McGuirk. 

There were 11,647 inmates cared for 
during 1904, with an average daily popu- 
lation of 1,72,3; the earnings were $101,- 
655.16, the expenditures for maintenance 
(construction and repairs not included) 
$183,724.10 an average per capita of 
thirty cents. 

The inmates during the year completed 
the erection of an 18-foot brick wall, 
2,422 feet long, enclosing the west side of 
the institution, in heavy retaining walls 
at quarry, containing 1,300 cubic yards 
of concrete, and erected a modern stone 
crushing plant with a daily capacity of 
600 cubic yards. They added eighty con- 
crete cells in the men's department, re- 
modeling two cell houses for better sani- 
tary effect, and enlarged the capacity of 
the women's dormitory, which was 
severely taxed during the year, by build- 
ing thirty-one additional rooms. , 

The above work is valued by the City 
Architect at $53,000 and cost the institu- 
tion for material $7,500. 

California avenue in front of the insti- 
tution was macadamized with a 40-foot 
roadway for 1,450 feet in its length, and 
2,700 feet of brick sidewalk was laid on 
California avenue and 26th street. New- 



water nuiins, sewers, electric devices, ad- 
ditional railroad tracks, etc., have been 
laid for better sanitation, fire protection 
aiul general welfare. 

All contracts for labor with the insti- 
tution expired December 31, 1904, and 
have not been renewed, as it is expected 
in a short time that all the inmates will 
be at work on city account. 

The institution has maintained an av- 
erage of 165 girls under sixteen years of 
age in its two houses of shelter, which 
are doing creditable work, while its John 
Worthy School Department had 938 boys 
during the year for training and educa- 
tion. With the erection of a new women's 
building, for which an appropriation has 
just been made, the institution will be in 
a better position for effective work. 

The facilities of the institution are 
severely taxed by the increase of popula- 
tion, and before long will require more 
room; some steps towards anticipating 
its wants should be taken now. In the 
event of the establishment of garbage 
plants, one should be built here in order 
to do the needful work for the community 
at a minimum cost, as well as to afford 
work for the inmates. 

The products of the various depart- 
ments have been utilized by the city in so 
far as possible, and the institution should 
be privileged to dispose of its surplus on 
the open market. 

Its record shows improving health con- 
ditions, lowered death rate and a reduc- 
ing percentage of recommitments, while 
the policy of work for every inmate has 
been strictly adhered to. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

During the year 1904, the fire depart- 
ment responded to 8,928 alarms. The 
value of property involved was $122,- 
075,301.00. The loss for the year was 
$2,950,254.00 or $112,677.00 less than in 
the year 1903. The total insurance in- 
volved was $77,234,230.00. 

Of the five new engine houses built 



April 10, 

during the year 1903, all were occupied 
and companies placed in service during 
1904. Three new steam fire engines and 
two aerial hook and ladder trucks were 
received and placed in service. Contracts 
for five new steam fire engines and three 
new aerial trucks have been awarded dur- 
ing the year. Thirty-five thousand five 
hundred feet of hose was purchased at a 
cost of $31,615.00. and fifty-five new 
horses were purchased at a cost of 
$10,520.00. The cost of repairs to appa- 
ratus for the year amounted to $33,601.45. 

I would again suggest the early instal- 
lation of the high pressure water system 
in the congested district and the same for 
the Stock Yards District, or that the en- 
gine companies now located there be du- 
plicated; also the installation of the pipe- 
line system for the fire boats, as hereto- 
fore recommended, the same to be part 
of the high pressure water system. 

The fire department now embraces one 
hundred engine companies; twenty-eight 
hook and ladder companies, including one 
water tower and fifteen chemical engines, 
and one hose company. There are also 
five fire boats in service. 

Tlie Lambert Tree medal for distin- 
guished bravery for the year 1902, was 
awarded to Jacob Heisselman. 

The Lambert Tree medal for distin- 
guished bravery for the year 1903, was

DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

The report of the business agent shows, 
that there were issued during the year 
1904, 19,584 orders for materials, sup- 
plies and repair work, involving an ex- 
penditure of $707,059.92. A comparison 
with business of the previous year shows 
an increase of 1,271 in the number of or- 
ders issued, and an increase of $53,864.60 
in the total sum expended through the 
department. The average expenditure in- 
volved in the year's transaction was 
$36.10, as compared with $30.21 for the 
year 1903, showing an average increase 
of $5.89. The year's business, as thus 
summarized, included purchases of mer-

eliandise for tlie warehouse maintained by 
the department, as well as of stationery 
and ofiiee supplies carried in stock in the 
City Hall. The warehouse stock includes 
materials and, supplies which are 
in regular and constant use, 
and which are delivered upon 
requisition' in small lots to the several de- 
partments. There were issued during the 
year, 1,861 orders on the warehouse, 
mostly including lists of small items and 
representing a cost of $21,382. 

The cost of maintaining the Department 
of Supplies during the year 1904, includ- 
ing salaries, rent of warehouse, equip- 
ment and all other expenses, was $15,- 
959.81. During the same period the de- 
partment received from the sale of scrap 
iron, old machinery and various waste 
materials the sum of $8,091.80.

BUILDING DEPARTMENT. 

This department has been working un- 
der the Building ordinance of 1898, with 
its various subsequent amendments, and 
has been seriously hampered because of 
the inadequacy of the ordinances. 
- To secure a new and revised ordinance 
has taken one year, with the occasional 
aid of the Architects' and other commit- 
tees. This ordinance was recently passed 
by the City Council. It contains four 
hundred and ninety-three (493) sections, 
a number of cross-references, and an in- 
dex containing sixteen hundred (1,600) 
references. 

Among the more important features of 
it are the new "School Ordinance" and 
the ordinances governing "Department 
Stores," "Fire-Proofing," and "Reinforced 
Concrete Construction." 

A new and complete system of records 



April 10, 

has been instituted, which has not only 
increased the efficiency of the inspections 
to an immeasurable degree, but has also 
placed such a check upon the inspectors 
that the amount of their work has been 
increased as follows: 
Year 1902 — Average monthly in- 
spections for each inspector 70 

Year 1903 — Average monthly in- 

, speotions for each inspector 109 

Year 1904— Average monthly in- 
spections for each inspector 222 

Total number of inspections, 18 

inspectors 48,192 

Total number of inspections per 

month, 18 inspectors 4,016 

Total number of inspections per 

month, each inspector 222 

Number of churches inspected 819 

Number of halls inspected 957' 

Number of schools inspected 250 

" Number of theaters inspected 30 

Of these, all have been forced to comply 
in all respects with the requirements .of 
the Building ordinance, with the exception 
of three theaters — running by reason of 
federal injunction — and the schools, 
which have been referred to the school 
board — with their assurance of com- 
pliance. 

-Number of notices for erection of fire 

escapes served 987 

Number of fire escapes erected and 

inspected 1 104 

Suits started to force compliance 

with ordinance 709 

The elevator branch of the department 
has also been greatly increased in ef- 
ficiency and has added considerably to 
the revenue of the department. 

The number of elevators inspected this 
year is 3,020 greater than in the preced- 
ing year. This, with permits issued for 
the erection of three hundred and eighty- 
four (384) new elevators, increases the 
revenue $6,808.

The department has issued for the year 

building permits to the number of 7,151, 

as against 6,221 for the year 1903, and 

0,099 for the year 1902. 

The permits cover a frontage of 202,- 

349 feet, and are for the erection of 

buildings to cost $44,724,790.

CITY collector's OFFICE. 

The general receipts for the City Col- 
lector's office for the year 1904 was $8,- 
123,445.30, as compared to $7,463;767.87 
collected during the preceding year, show- 
ing an increase in 1904, $659,677.43. 

To the credit of the Corporate Fund, 
which is available for general adminis- 
tration expenses, an increase of $419,- 
166.39 is recorded. Of this amount there 
is a gain of $195,441.96 in the receipts 
from warrants for collection issued by 
self-sustaining inspection departments 
and Comptroller's charges for compensa- 
tion and damages to city bridges, The 
total amount collected from this source 
during 1904 amounts to $750,330.67. 
For this amount warrants to the number 
of 27,631 were drawn. 

The receipts for licenses and permits 
during 1904, amountd to $4,494,403.48, 
this being an increase of $208,696.43 
over 1903. 

Owing to the many public improve- 
ments inaugurated during the year in 
paving, sidewalk and sewer construction, 
the volume of detail work in handling 
special assessment rolls was increased 
about 40 per cent. Additional floor space 
and office construction is recommended to 
facilitate this work and for the better ac- 
commodation of the public.

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

The Department of Electricity has 
closed an eventful year in Chicago's his- 
tory. 

During the year 1904 the electric light 
system was extended by the addition of 
166 2,000-candle power arc lamps; 66 
were discontinued, leaving 100 net ad- 
ditional, and bringing the total number 



190S 

in service at the beginning of the year up 
to 5,107. In addition to these, 593 arc 
lamps have been added to the service, the 
most of these being operated from the 
new plant at Fullerton avenue and the 
Chicago River. A little more than 100 
miles of wire was placed for overhead 
lights and about 16^ miles of cable for 
underground lights; for the latter nearly 
five miles of conduit was placed, with 
about 12 miles of duct feet therein; -90 
arc lamp posts were erected ; 41/2 miles of 
electric light cable were placed in service 
on account of renewals. 

The average cost for maintaining 5,034 
arc lamps during the year was $55.16 per 
lamp. 

A new electric light station at Fuller- 
ton avenue, the Horatio N. May Electric 
Power Station, near the Chicago River, 
has been completed and placed in service 
during the year. Approximately $75,000 
in contracts are outstanding for equip- 
ment, which included two 1,100 horse 
power vertical cross-compound engines, 
four 500 horse power boilers at 225 
pounds pressure, super-heaters for th'e 
same, two 750 k. w. three-phase alternat- 
ing current generators, with two ex- 
citers, and a complete switchboard equip- 
ment, condensing system steam piping, 
stoker equipment, traveling crane and 
500 arc lamps with transformers and 
regulators, to connect with the switch- 
boards. This will be the most modern 
and economical municipal lighting sta- 
tion in the United States. 

All future extensions to the lighting 
svstem must be made with a view of ulti- 
mate operation of the lights from the 
water power now being developed by the 
Drainage Board. The existing plants 
are so arranged that no great changes are 
necessary to apply such power and still 
retain the steam power for emergency 
use. To illustrate how simple and inex- 
pensive the application of the power can 
be made, so far as stations are concerned, 
approximate figures haA^e been obtained 



i

on the necessary apparatus, which is 
given as follows: 
Rice and Lincoln Streets Sta- 
tion $16,500.00

R. A. Waller Station 16,500.00 

Fullerton Avenue Station ( new ) . 1,500.00 



Total cost to apply power. . .$65,500.00 
The conditions are such that the opera- 
tion of the stations would not be inter- 
rupted for a moment. 

The importance of securing this water 
power for municipal purposes cannot be 
overestimated. The City Council and 
civic bodies interested in the furthering 
of the city's interests have declared for 
the acquisition of this power by the city, 
and some efforts have been made to agree 
upon a price to be paid therefor, but 
nothing definite decided upon. In the 
meantime the development of the power 
is progressing, and within eighteen 
months should be completed. Unless 
something is done immediately towards 
closing a contract and executing the 
physical part of the work necessary on 
the part of the city, to make use of the 
power when ready, it will lie dormant or 
will be acquired by private interests, and 
in either case, the city's interests will not 
be conserved. 

The acquisition of this power will set- 
tle for all time the important question of 
street lighting, and the department has 
conclusive evidence that there is no more 
potent factor in the reduction of crime 
than properly lighted streets and alleys. 
There never will be another such oppor- 
tunity to effect a great saving to the city 
and improve conditions generally as now 
offered, ^o obstacle should be allowed 
to stand in the way of the immediate ac- 
quisition of the entire water power, and 
the execution of that part of the work re- 
quired to be done by the city, that it may 
be ]-eady to make immediate use of the 
power when developed. 

In the Bureau of Fire Alarm Tele- 



graph, 193 fire alarm boxes have been 
placed in front of school houses, 25 in 
front of theaters, and 34 at other loca- 
tions, a total of 252 boxes. This is the 
greatest number placed in service in any 
one year since the installation of the sys- 
tem in 1865. The total number of fire 
alarm boxes now in service is 1,689. All 
the old iron wire has been replaced by 
copper, leaving only 98 miles to be re- 
placed next year. 

There was placed in service during the 
year 73,956 feet of cable, of which 60,- 
429 feet was for underground extensions, 
and 13,527 feet of repairs and renewals; 
1,085 feet was used for miscellaneous re- 
pairs. 

Ten additional police patrol boxes 
were installed during 1904, making a 
total of 1,031 in service; 150 signal 
boxes were rebuilt and rewired. 

Over 5,000 street signs were placed on 
gas and gasoline lamp heads and on 
street corners, 2,640 of which were made 
in our repair shop. The gas mantle 
lamps were increased by changing 441 
plain tips to the mantle tops, making a 
total of 11,400 mantle lamps. Provisions 
are being made to change 600 more dur- 
ing 1905. 

There was a saving of $3,332.06 be- 
cause of the cheaper rate obtained for 
the maintenance of gas mantles. 

About 2,000 new automobile licenses 
have been issued during the year, and 
1,600 new automobile plates, in addition 
to the renewal of a great part of those 
previously issued. The revenue collected 
therefrom was $6,034; the expense for 
number plates and stationery has been ■ 
less than $1,000, leaving a clear net 
profit of $5,000 for the year. 

During the year 29,971 electric mo- 
tors were inspected, having 150,019 1-8 
horse power capacity; 1,950 signs, con- 
taining 34 arc lights and 115,721 incan- 
descent lights ; 7,077 arc lamps and 398,- 
904 incandescent lamps, exclusive of 
lamps on signs. The total amount of 



April 10, 

revenue was $49,121.14, being a net in- 
crease for the bureau of over $14,000, 
largely due to the increased revenues 
from electric light sign inspection. 

The department had credit of $9,451.68 
from the sale of power and light and $2,- 
618 was received from electric permits. 
About $7,000 was taken in from miscel- 
laneous sources.

MUNICIPAL 



LIBRARY AND 
STATISTICS. 



BUREAU OF 



The Bureau of Statistics has become an 
important factor in disseminating cor- 
rect and comprehensive knowledge of Chi- 
<3Qgo and its affairs. During the last 
year 207 letters of inquiry were referred 
to it by various city departments, and 



1905 

751 letters addressed to it directly were 
answered. The office was visited by not 
less than 4,339 persons, an average of 
about 14 for each working day. The li- 
brary of the bureau was increased by 
1,737 books and pamphlets and numbers 
now 7,934 pieces, many of which are of 
great value and could not be bought. 
Nearly all of these books were procured 
without any cost to the city, except for 
postage and express. 

The bureau devised an entirely new 
system of records for the Police Depart- 
ment, which will not only result in in- 
creasing the efficiency and discipline of 
the police force, but eventually bring 
about an actual saving in the expendi- 
tures of the department.

SMALL PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS. 

Nine municipal playgrounds were in 
successful operation during the year un- 
der the direction of the Special Park 
Commission. One new play center was 
added to the system, being opened m 
August, to the keen delight of thousands 
of children. The location of the ninth 
oTound is on West Chicago avenue, east 
of Lincoln street. So much has the at- 
tendance overtaxed the area of 200 by 
125 feet that efforts are being made to 
enlarge this playground next year by 
usin- adjoining vacant land belonging to 
the dty next to the electric lighting 
plant. 

It is gratifying to report that a public 
utility corporation has been actuated by 
the public spirit to which I appealed in 
my annual message for 1901, by granting 
for three years the free use of vacant 
land along the right of way of the North- 
western Elevated Kailroad Company for 
playground purposes. The sites are lo- 
cated at Orleans street and Institute 
place, where a playground is already m 
operation, and on Orleans street, north of 
Schiller street, on the old Alexian 
Brothers' Hospital property. On the lat- 
ter ground, 500 by 101 feet in area, the 
Special Park Commission proposes to es- 
tablish a playground next year. With 
this playground in operation, the most 
congested district of the North Side will 
be well equipped with playgrounds, when 
supplemented by the' small parks to be 
established by the Commissioners of Lin- 
coln Park. 

The insecure tenure of several munici- 
pal playgrounds suggests the advisability 
of the City Council appropriating part 
of the unexpended balance of the per- 
manent improvement bond issue for the 
purchase of playground sites. Notice was 
served in December by the owners of the 
Jones playground site on Plymouth court 
to vacate the property. As the city had 
not even a lease on the land, it will be 
• necesary to abandon that First Ward 



1905 

playground. Several playgrounds are 
held merely by short-term leases, termin- 
able in most cases by the serving of a 
sixty-day notice. 

In addition to the operation of the 
municipal playgrounds, the Special Park 
Commission and one of its members, Mr. 
Clarence Buckingham, have assisted m 
the establishment of playgrounds on the 
West Side. One is located on Armitage 
avenue, opposite Francisco avenue, in con- • 
nection with the Armitage Avenue Set- 
tlement, and the other is at Washtenaw 
avenue and Lexington street, the latter 
being an athletic field, under the care of 
Aid. Scully. 

Out of the $1,000 fund which was pro- 
vided by the City Council for summer 
playgrounds under control of the Vaca- 
tion School and Playground Board the 
first public playground in the Ghetto dis- 
trict of the Ninth Ward was established 
on West Twelfth place, between Canal 
and Clinton streets. From the same fund 
a playground was opened on West Van 
Buren street, near Aberdeen street, in 
connection with the Forward Movement 
Social Settlement. Assistance was ren- 
dered the playground at Twenty-fifth 
place and Wallace street, conducted by 
the pastor of All Saints' Church as a pub- 
lic enterprise. 

The Commissioners of Lincoln Park are 
at work on three of the four small park 
sites recommended by the Special Park 
Commission two years ago. An agree- 
ment has been reached for the purchase 
of the House of Good Shepherd property 
at Orleans and Elm streets, for $100,000. 
This will be the first site acquired. The 
other sites are on Oak street, between 
Gault court and Milton avenue, and 
the tract bounded by Vine, Gardner, Ved- 
der streets and the Schiller School prop- 

^'■^^- • ,x. 

In order to bring to a speedy issue the 

question of validity of the West Side 

small park bond act a test suit, m the 

form of an injunction proceeding, was 



Ji 



April 10,

1905 



started by a friendly taxpayer with the 
approval of the Special Commission. This 
case and another parallel one are now on 
appeal before the Supreme Court and a 
decision is expected any time. The West 
Side people have been patiently waiting 
for breathing spaces and recreation 
grounds, and it is to be hoped they will 
get what they need without further vex- 
atious delay. 

Ten of the fourteen parks and squares 
which are being established by the South 
Park Commissioners, largely upon the 
initiative and recommendations of the 
commission appointed by me five years 
ago, were provided this winter with skat- 
ing ponds and toboggan slides. This is 
a needy addition to Chicago's recreation 
facilities. After a year's delay, the South 
Park Commissioners adopted the recom- 
mendation of the City Commission in se- 
lecting the tract bounded by Forty-fifth 
and Forty-sixth places, Princeton avenue 
and the Fort Wayne Railroad, for the 
Thirtieth Ward small park site. 

A special report relating to a metropol- 
itan or outer belt park system was com- 
pleted by the City Commission and or- 
dered published. This project has always 
met with my earnest approval. In view 
of the fact that the City Commission had 
authority, under the Council's resolutions 
of November 6, 1899, to prepare reports 
on park needs, both within and outside 
the city, I do not believe this rural park 
work should be relegated to any body 
more recently organized, and lacking in 
composite representation. The Special 
Commission is now fully representative 
of both the city and county, and fully 
competent to carry the project it orig- 
inated to a successful conclusion. 
Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrisoi^, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Bennett moved that 2,500 pam- 
phlet copies of the Mayor's message be 
published for distribution. 

The motion prevailed. 



Aid. Beilfuss presented the following 
resolution :

of the City of Chicago, and presiding of- 
ficer of the City Council, for the distin- 
guished ability, absolute impartiality, 
uniform courtesy, and perfect dignity 
with which he has always presided over 
its deliberations, and performed the ex- 
acting and important duties of the Chair 
during his four consecutive terms as 
presiding officer.

office, addressed the Council as follows: 
It is usual to deliver what is called an 
inaugural address on these occasions. I 
forbear in view of the fact that my in- 
augural has been framed by the people 
of Chicago. The issues crystallized in

the platform on which I was elected is 
tyhe policy I have elected to carry out.

Chicago, I shall retire at the end of my

To the Eonorable, the City Council of the 
City of CMpago: 

Gentlemen— Certain property owners 
on Michigan avenue, between Adams and 
Washington streets, recently requested 



1905 

me to take steps to cause the removal of 
the tracks in that street, between said 
points, so that the pavement might be 
properly repaired and the street put in 
good condition for public travel. The 
operation of cars over said portion of 
Michigan avenue has been entirely sus- 
pended for more than two years. I 
therefore invited the representatives of 
the Chicago Union Traction Company to 
a conference to discuss the removal of 
said tracks, and at said conference, which 
was held a few days ago, it was agreed 
by the Chicago Union Traction Company 
and its receivers that the company would 
remove the tracks from that portion of 
Michigan avenue, provided the same 
could be done without prejudice to what- 
ever rights said company might have in 
that portion of the street. 

I transmit herewith such an ordinance 
directing that said street car tracks be 
taken up, and I respectfully ask the pas- 
sage of the same, so that the street may 
be properly paved as soon as possible. 
Respectfully, 
E. F. Dunne, 

Mayor.

The following is the ordinance as

Whereas, The City Council of the City 
of Chicago on February 1, 1886, passed 
an ordinance purporting to grant per- 
mission and authority to the Chicago 
Passenger Railway Company, its suc- 
cessors and assigns, to lay down, con- 
struct, maintain and operate for the 
period of twenty (20) years from the 
passage thereof, a double or single track 
railway, with all necessary and con- 
venient turn-outs, turn-tables, side- 
tracks and switches, in, upon, over and 
along all that part of Michigan avenue 
which lies between Adams street and 
Washington street, which ordinance was 
accepted March 8, 1886, by said com- 
pany and is published at page 1287, et 
seq., of the Special Ordinances of Chi- 
cago of 1898; and. 

Whereas, The City Council of the City 
of Chicago on March 21, 1887, passed an 
ordmanee purporting, among other 



64 



1905 



things, to confirm said ordinance of Feb- 
ruary 1, 1886, and certain other ordi- 
nances to the Chicago Passenger Rail- 
way Company therein named, which or- 
dinance was accepted March 28, 1887, 
and is published at page 1300, et seq., 
of the Special Ordinances of Chicago of 
1898; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Union Traction 
Company claims to be the successor of 
the Chicago Passenger Railway Com- 
pany, and to be authorized to maintain 
the tracks in Michigan avenue between 
Adams street asd Washington street; 
and 

Whereas, It has been and is now 
claimed by the City of Chicago that the 
tracks in Michigan avenue between 
Adams street and Washington street 
have not been operated so as to ac- 
commodate the public, and that thereby 
the right to operate the same has been 
forfeited by non-user, which claims said 
companies and the receivers of the Chi- 
cago Union Traction Company, however, 
deny; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago is de- 
sirous that said tracks be removed, and 
the said Chicago Union Traction Com- 
pany, by its receivers, has indicated a 
willingness to remove the same from 
said street, provided whatever ordinance 
rights said company has therein be^ not 
prejudiced thereby; now, therefore. 
Be it ordained hy the City Council of the 

City of Chicago: 

Section 1. That the street car tracks 
in Michigan avenue between Adams 
street and Washington street shall be 
taken up and removed from said portion 
of said street by the Chicago Passenger ' 
Railway Company, or its successors and 
assigns, within ten (10) days from the 
passage and approval of this ordinance. 

Section 2. The Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works is hereby authorized and di- 
rected to issue a permit for the removal 
of said tracks to the Chicago Passenger 
Railway Company, or its successors or 



■ 



May 1,

assigns, which said permit shall contain 
a stipulation that said permit and the 
removal of said tracks shall be without 
prejudice to the claims of the City of 
Chicago that the right to operate said 
tracks in Michigan avenue between 
Adams street and Washington street un- 
der authority of said ordinance of Feb- 
ruary 1, 1886, terminates February 1, 
1906, subject to prior termination, how- 
ever, by reason of the non-user thereof 
by said grantee, its successors and as- 
signs, and without prejudice to the claim 
of'' the Chicago Passenger Hallway Com- 
pany, or its successors or assigns, that 
the rioht to maintain and operate said 
tracks" does not expire until March 21, 
1907, and without prejudice to any liti- 
gation now pending or hereafter insti- 
tuted by either the City of Chicago or 
the Chicago. Passenger Railway Com.- 
pany, or its successors or assigns. 

Section 3. This ordinance shall be in 
force from and after its passage and the

ing permission and authority to the Chi- 
cago Sash, Door and Blind Manufactur- 



ing Company to construct and operate 
a single railroad switch track connecting 
with the tracks of the Chicago and Xorth-

Fleetwood street, at a point not exceed- 
ing 400 feet south of the southeast cor- 
ner of North avenue and Fleetwood

premises of said company with said Chi- 
cago and Northwestern Railway Com- 
pany's track then in operation in Fleet- 
wood street (see page 795 Council Pro- 
ceedings, 1900-1901). 

I received a communication, under 
date of April 20, from the Comptroller, 
stating that he has been advised by the 
Commissioner of Public Works that said 
switch track was never laid, and he there- 
fore requested that the matter be referred

able Body for the preparation and pas- 
sage of an ordinance repealing said privi- 
leges.

Washtenaw avenue to South Kedzie ave-

I am advised by the Board of Local 
Improvements that this ordinance was 
sent to the Council January 30, 1905, and

at that time deferred. Since January 30, 
1905, a. majority protest has been filed 
against the improvement with the Board 
of Local Improvements, and, under the 
statute, stays all proceedings for one 
year from- the date of filing of such pro- 
test. The passage of this ordinance since 
said protest has been filed is illegal, and 
nothing can be done until the expiration 
of said period of one year.

To thei Eonorahle, the City Council of the 

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith with- 
out my approval an ordinance passed 
at your regular meeting of April 6, 1905, 
for plastering curb walls, grading and 
paving with granite blocks Canalport 
avenue, from South Canal street to South 
Halsted street, for the reason that the 
Board of Local Improvements advises me 
that since November 2-, 1903, when said 
ordinance was sent to the Council and 
by it deferred, new proceedings have been 
commenced and confirmed by the County 
Court, and the improvement is now under 
contract. 

Respectfully, 

E. F. Dunne, 

Mayor.

out my approval, an order passed at the 
last regular meeting of your Honorable 
Body, directing the Supt. of the Bureau 
of Water to turn on water at the prem- 
ises, No. 668 West Madison street, for 
the reason that the pipe in question, or- 
' dered to be turned on, supplies two 



premises, as shown by the report of the 
Superintendent of the Bureau of Water.

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an order passed at 
your regular meeting of April 6, 1905, 
directing the Commissioner of Buildings 
to grant a permit to Frank Kirchenstein 
to raise his one-story wooden barn, 21x 
48 feet, located in the rear of 710 West 
17th street, 9 feet above the level of the 
ground, and support the same with 
wooden posts, the enclosure to be made of 
corrugated iron, for the reason that this 
appears to be a violation of the building 
ordinance, and ought not be allowed to 
pass without a proper investigation. 

I therefore suggest that the vote by 
which the order was passed be recon- 
sidered, and the order referred to the 
Committee on Buildings for investiga- 
tion and report.

ber and covered with corrugated iron, at 
an approximate cost of $3,500 and $1,500, 
respectively, and to be located between 
82d and 83d streets, east of Ontario ave-

1905, and printed at page 3019 of the 
printed Council Proceedings of 1904-1905, 
which regulates the construction of sheds.

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following opinion: 

Office of Corporation Counsel,] 
Chicago, April 19, 1905.T 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: * 

Gentlemen— At your meeting of Janu- 
ary 23, 1905, upon motion of Aid. But- 
terworth, you adopted the following or- 
der: 

"Whereas, Since the abolition of wine 



rooms in saloons it has become the prac- 
tice of minors of both sexes to gather and 
loiter in fruit stores and similar places 
of business at night; and. 

Whereas, The gathering or loitering 
of minors in such places of business is 
calculated to undermine their morals; 
therefore be it 

Orde7'ed, That the Corporation Counsel 
be and he is hereby ordered to draft an 
ordinance licensing and regulating such 
places of business, or in any other man- 
ner curbing ' or suppressing the before- 
mentioned abuses." 

I do not see how fruit stores can be 
placed, for the purpose suggested, in a 
class by themselves. It is not apparent 
why the loitering of minors in fruit 
stores at night should be more detri- 
mental to their morals than loitering in 
cigar stores, drug stores or other places 
of business. 

The City Council is not given any ex- 
press power to license and regulate fruit 
stores, and that power, if it exists, is de- 
rived from the general police powers dele- 
gated to the City Council by the State. 

In my opinion, an ordinance drafted 
on the lines of the order of your Honor- 
able Body would be unreasonable, because 
the classification for the purposes of the 
ordinance would have no real basis and 
the ordinance would discriminate against 
those engaged in a legitimate line of busi- 
ness; in short, such an ordinance would 
be in contravention of the State and 
Federal Constitutions. 

Very truly yours, 
Maclay Hoyne, 
Assistant Corpoj^ation' Counsel.

Corporation Counsel.
